BOISE - It was an exciting and emotional night for Cowboy Ninja Lance Pekus and his fans.

The Idaho cowboy had the fastest time Monday night on “American Ninja Warrior,” advancing him to the next stage of the finals. But the "Cowboy Ninja" also revealed to America there is more than one hero in his family.

You would have never known it when watching him compete on national TV that with every grueling obstacle he manages to run through, climb over or hang from, back at home in Salmon, Idaho -- his wife Heather is battling her own competition.

"In our early 20s, Heather got diagnosed with MS,” said Lance Pekus. “She was able to get on medication and she went eight or nine years without having symptoms or problems.”
