How Does a Double Leg Amputee Become an Inspirational Speaker for Runners?

    How does a double leg amputee become a marathon runner, much less an inspirational speaker for runners?

    Bob Wieland has been an inspiration for runners because while others run on legs, he has run on his arms!

    Bob may not come in first place, but no one else has equaled the challenges that Bob has faced.

    One of his greatest challenges was walking across America on his arms which took over three years and eight months to accomplish.

    If you’re looking for an after dinner sports speaker for your team or group, Bob will inspire you with his lifetime of experiences and will give your group something to remember for the rest of their life!

    Bob has been a sports motivational speaker for over 35 years and has been involved in many sports arenas from amateur to professional levels.

    He has been the strength and motivation coach for the Green Bay Packers, professional weightlifter, marathon runner, and college baseball player when he was being scouted by the Philadelphia Phillies.

    But he never reached professional baseball because he had to accept another contract,
    from the United States Army.

    If you are planning a meeting or need an after dinner speaker, Bob’s real-life experiences will challenge your group to greater heights!
