Every once in a while, you meet someone so special you know you need to connect more with that person. Today, I have the opportunity to share my conversation with one of those people, Sidney Smith.

I met him briefly at a 5k then spent a couple hours hiking down a mountainside while shooting our bows at the Total Archery Challenge. That doesn't sound that special until you learn that Sid is a double amputee. and does his walking and running on prosthetic blades. We talk about overcoming fear, focusing on the positives of life, learning to appreciate what we have, getting used to pain, and turning tragedy into triumph.

SIDNEY SMITH

A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to participate in the Total Archery Challenge in Northern Utah with my friends at MTN OPS.

I met a lot of great people but I had the incredible opportunity to run the course with my guest today, Mr. Sidney Smith. I had only bumped into him one other time but as I spent 3 or so hours walking down a mountain with Sid, a double amputee, I was amazed and humbled at how this man shows up in his life.

He's an avid bow hunter, a triathlete, and, as I mentioned before, he's a double amputee. But he doesn't let that keep him from living his life in a big way and inspiring others along the way to do the same.
