I meant to post this a long time ago, but it slipped my mind.
Nick Nelson is - without question - the toughest damn 9 year old Minnesota has ever produced.
He chose to have his lower leg amputated so he could, as he put it, "Run with my friends."
I couldn't embed the video, but you'll find the whole story here.
In addition to being the toughest mother around, he also has a totally awesome, super dry, moderately sarcastic sense of humor I've never seen in a person younger than 25.
I really hope he takes up running...cause I'd love to get my ass kicked by this cat.
