After her husband was killed in Afghanistan and the terrorist bombs at the Boston Marathon went off in front of her, Linda Ambard vowed not to let terrorism take any more from her. As of this year, Linda has run 220 marathons, with at least one in every state and one on each of the seven continents. Linda’s story is about more than just survival.  It’s about learning to thrive no matter what life gives you. Her running accomplishments are nothing short of amazing, but it’s her perseverance that resonates most with me. Coach Claire asks her about her incredible story, the naysayers who say she’s running too much, and how she trains and recovers to run so many marathons so often. Linda is deeply positive and inspiring so if you need a little lift in your steps today, this is the story that will do it.
