Need some inspiration today? Go no further. Amy, who lost part of her leg in a motorcycle accident, won the Sullivan Award this year for her achievements as an endurance athlete. The New York Times profiled Amy and though I highly suggest reading their story in it's entirety, here's a summary:
Palmeiro-Winters was only 22 years old in 1994 when she lost her leg after she was hit by a car while riding her motorcycle. Before the accident she had a day job as a welder and competed as a marathon runner and hurdler (but not even close to world class). This is where her amazing story begins.
