The Boston Marathon is happening today up in Boston, MA. Anyone running a marathon should be celebrated for what an accomplishment it is to finish. But for this one woman it’s just one of many she will be running to reach her goal.
Jacky Hunt-Broersma from Arizona is on a quest to run 102 marathons in 102 days. Today’s Boston Marathon is her 92nd on the list. 10 more to go!
Not only is this a crazy adventure she on… she’s doing it all with ONE LEG! Jacky lost the lower half of her left leg below the knee to cancer. She now runs with a prosthetic. This sure isn’t slowing her down to break this record though. If she reaches 102 it will be the world record for all female runners, not just amputees.
Go get ’em Jacky!
