LEADMAN: The Dave Mackey Story

Here’s the latest from Billy Yang….this time the story of Dave Mackey, whose leg was crushed by a 300 lb. boulder on a training run.

What do I have to complain about?

What’s stopping me from starting to run again?

This is pretty darn inspirational.

Here’s the YouTube description:

On May 23, 2015, the unimaginable happened to Altra Running and CamelBak athlete Dave Mackey on a routine training run. At the summit of Bear Peak, a giant boulder became dislodged sending Mackey tumbling down the mountain before it also landed on him crushing his left leg. After a series of unsuccessful surgeries over the next year plus to get back to normal, he and his family difficult decision to amputate. This is his story about perseverance and coming back from the injury to attempting to complete the Leadville Race Series to become the first ever leg amputee to call himself a “Leadman”.

Billy Yang does a great job on all his films.
