And on Sunday, Nov. 1, Adi participated, along with more than 50,000 other athletes, in the 45th annual New York City Marathon.
When the JewishPress.com spoke with Adi just days before the marathon, he said he felt ready, excited and well-prepared.
“Don’t believe it when people tell you that you can’t do something,” Adi told this reporter. “Choose your friends based on whether they say you can do something.”
Adi Deutsch finished the 2015 NYC Marathon with a time of 3 hours and 54 minutes. Kol HaKavod!
Thirty-six years after losing a leg to a landmine in Lebanon, Adi Deutsch is a winner in many, many ways. And he’s helping others to become winners also.
