Rome Leykin has a motto, "Relentless, forward, positive momentum. Practice makes progress." That mindset recently got him to the Gaylord Gauntlet, a "Tough Mudder style" 5K at Gaylord Hospital in Wallingford, featuring mud, trails, meadow running and 24 obstacles.

More than 800 athletes tackled the course this year, which took mental and physical strength. Leykin was new to the event, but he's overcome his own share of obstacles in life.

Leykin lost his legs in 2018. He was living in Brooklyn at the time, waiting for the subway, when he had a seizure while on the platform.
