Wounded soldier completes London Marathon

A soldier who was told he would never walk again has completed the London Marathon on crutches.

Major Phil Packer walked across the finish line in The Mall, central London, two weeks after beginning the world-famous race.

I know how tough it is to complete a marathon and I'm presently trying to recover from a leg injury so I have profound respect for what Major Packer has accomplished.
