Amy Palmeiro-Winters is a runner; she will not stand still for anything. Eagerly making a mark in the sport, it seemed that her running career would be cut short when, at 21, a motorcycle accident claimed half of her left leg.
In spite of expert opinion, she began running again after 27 surgeries over a three-year span. The surgery attempts ended with the decision to amputate from just below the knee. She has since experienced tremendous success. The sheer fact that Palmeiro-Winters kept motivated through so much adversity is something few can do.
