Amputee runs 100 miles on a treadmill
A lot of people are exercising at home as we get through life in quarantine. But Jacky Hunt-Broersma took it to the next level by becoming the first amputee to run 100 miles in the "comfort" of her own home on her treadmill. When the Umstead 100 Ultra Marathon that she was scheduled to run was canceled, she decided to come up with an alternative. For 23 hours and 38 minutes she ran, stopping only for bathroom breaks and bites of pizza. With her new comfort level on the treadmill, Jacky is already thinking about what to challenge herself with next.
