Edward Lychik is an adventurer. He joined the U.S Army when he was 19 and was sent to Fort Wainwright, Alaska, serving as Combat Engineer with the 1/25th SBCT. The following year he was deployed to Afghanistan on the Operation Enduring Freedom campaign. Midway through his deployment, a recoiless rifle rocket struck his vehicle and he lost his left leg and became a Hip-disartic amputee. After medically retiring, he road tripped and traveled through some of the most beautiful national parks in the United States. In those timeless moments, he found a passion for running. While being one of the few hip-amputees that run, he ran various races from a half-marathon, tough mudder, spartan races, 25k trail run and a Marathon in 4:33. His journey in fact.. is only just beginning.
