Prior to the accident, Sarah had battled with weight issues throughout her life. However, in her mid-20s, she discovered the transformative power of running. What started as a mile a few times a week soon became a daily routine of several miles. She shed the excess weight and found a new lease on life. When The Heather Abbott Foundation supplied Sarah with a running blade, she got the tools to continue her fitness journey.
Sarah’s dedication to running even led her to participate regularly in half marathons, until fate intervened.
“I didn’t know at the time that I had a huge infection in my stump-leg that would put me in the hospital and off my feet all of December 2022 and most of January 2023. I was injured again in early February 2023. February 26th, 2023 I ran my second half marathon on the blade, with very little time to train post injury, but I finished.”
