Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor Runs To Inspire Others...

By Sukh Singh, Associate Partner & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International

Rebekah Gregory wasn't a runner in 2013. She was a spectator at the 2013 Boston Marathon when a bomb went off, during which she suffered severe injuries, losing her left leg.

What would you do? 

Here is an excerpt from her book, Taking My Life Back, where she explains the process she went through to return recently in the 2017 Marathon...

"My first one-mile test run was a killer. But I practiced tuning out the discomfort and kept increasing the distance day by day. Two weeks before the marathon, I managed a sixteen-mile day! Oh, it was glorious to feel all that ground, all that distance, churning away beneath my feet. The memory of every day spent in a prone position or lying on my side trying to find a position that hurt a little less drove me to push for greater distance. The helpless feeling of lying with my leg elevated, luxuriating in my five minutes of Dangle Time, was still strong in my mind."

What impact did all that training, sacrifice and passion have? Here is a message from someone she met on the day of her run...

"Rebekah, I know you don’t know me very well . . . [but if] April 15, 2013, changed your life in ways you could have never imagined, it also changed mine. I was going through a rough patch in life, nothing at all compared to what you and so many others faced that day. . . . You and all the other survivors touched me in ways I will never be able to express in words. . . . So to see you cross that finish line, Rebekah [two years after the 2013 Marathon], it was completely and utterly overwhelming. . . . I will forever think of you whenever I need to cross little finish lines of my own."

Who are you inspiring today with the way you are living your life? Here's another amazing example of one young man who has inspired 10 million people through his story...
