I was duly impressed by the efforts of the amputee runner in Saturday’s Long Island Greenbelt 50k, but I didn’t realize that in the process she set the world record for an amputee runner. She also owns the road marathon record with a stunning 3:05 time. Amazing stuff & congratulations to Amy Palmiero-Winters.



  1. She probably “beats” me in life, but if you look at the clock in the background of the top pic, you’ll see that in the race, you’ll see the 7 hour time. But really, that is amazing considering that so much of the race was on uneven terrain: sandy, muddy, tree stumps, rocks, etc.
