Eric McElvenny deployed three times as a Marine and on his final tour, was wounded in Afghanistan after stepping on an IED. Eric suffered the amputation of his right leg below the knee, a life-changing opportunity that began his next journey.

Faced with a physical challenge and an uncertain future, Eric made a promise to himself to run an Ironman Triathlon.

On his journey from the hospital bed to the Ironman World Championships, he realized that the challenge and adversity he was up against and the techniques he used to reach the finish line could be used against the challenges we all entertain. Everyone’s experiences differ, but Eric shares what motivated him and how he was able to maintain an overall positive attitude.

How looking at the situation through a different lens played a big rule in that attitude. It’s a fun presentation. It’s interactive, you’ll probably convince Eric to take his leg off and I guarantee you’ll laugh at some points and come on the verge of tears at others.

*Eric personally tailors each presentation to fit the needs of the event planner. Eric also loves spending time, both before and after the event, with the team members and audience to form great relationships.
