Chris Waddell, paraplegic athlete, summits 19,340 ft. Kilimanjaro. Amazing!

A few days ago, Waddell became the first paraplegic to summit Kilimanjaro on his own power.  You can ask my wife Lesley, Don Fallis, or me: this is a big, tough mountain to make it up on two feet, let alone Waddell's method.  Check out his blog, which is supposed to have video of his ascent and descent sometime soon.  (http://one-revolution.com/blog/)  He also tells a story in his blog about how his team brought over a prosthetic for a Tanzanian guide who had previously lost a leg in a climbing accident.  This man has now summitted twice using the prosthetic. I find these two feats remarkable and super motivating!
