A Conversation with Andre Slay: Amputee, Pilot, and Marathoner

April 18, 2014

Andre Slay is a native of Arkansas. However, his southern charm and easy manner belie a grit and determination that pushed him to enter the Boston Mararthon for the first time this year.  It’s Andre’s third full marathon despite having lost his right leg in a motorcycle accident eight years ago.  Andre sat down to talk with Basic Black about losing his leg, how becoming a vegan dramatically changed his health for the better, and why he’s running the Boston Marathon.
