Little more than 1 year later, Ralston and his new prosthetic arm completed the grueling 100 mile Leadville Trail ultramarathon, a race held at high elevation on rock trails in the mountains of Colorado. Race creator Ken Chlouber: “He’s the essence of Leadville. We’ve got a motto here - you’re tougher than you think you are, and you can do more than you think you can. Guy like Aron, he shows the rest of us what we can do if we dig deep.”
Believe in yourself and do whatever it takes. Read Ralston’s incredible story inBetween a Rock and a Hard Place see his story in the new movie 127 Hours. Even during the toughest choices, know that you have an endless capacity for greatness. Dig deep, be great.
