Army Veteran With Prosthetic Leg Carries Woman Across Finish Line Of Boston Marathon…

Trigger Reset

A wounded Army veteran missing part of his left leg carried his racing partner across the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday, according to WCVB in Boston.

According to ABC affiliate WCVB-TV, Earl Granville picked up his running partner and carried her to the finish line while holding an American flag despite having a prosthetic leg.

It’s unclear why Granville had to carry his partner.

The station reports that Granville is a nine-year veteran that lost a portion of his leg to a roadside bomb while serving in Afghanistan in 2008.

This isn’t Granville’s first marathon either — he used a hand-bike to compete in marathons in Boston, Chicago, Detroit and New York despite his injury but didn’t use a bike this time around.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
