I’m wowed and impressed with the story of Adrianne Haslet-Davis, a professional ballroom dancer who tragically lost her left lower leg following the April 15, 2013 bombings at the Boston Marathon. Today, she’s a runner in the 26.2 mile race – happening right now! – through the Cradle of Liberty.
Her story is incredible and this is further proof that no technology is inherently bad, but it’s what you do with it that can inspire others and imbue the world with hope. Her recovery to this degree would have been nearly unimaginable even 5 years ago, but now this is very much the world in which this is possible.
Read more about her story here at Huffington Post, and tune into the Marathon streaming today to catch a glimpse of her running in action!
