See Ted's unofficial results on the Bank of America Chicago Marathon website.

 

Moss, who was paralyzed in a plane crash in 2006, took up hand cycling as a way to get in shape. This past July, he switched his focus to wheelchair racing. The 2014 Chicago Marathon was the first marathon he's competed in.

 

"The accident may have taken away his ability to walk, but it has not taken away his mental toughness or perseverance," Ted's son Ben said.
