This is my definition of podcasting to the core — well, the only reason I started doing a few here and there. Two great friends just casually hangin' out, talking about life. One of my all time favorites. Adrianne Haslet is the essence of #BostonStrong and a triumphant warrior who started conquering marathons after losing her leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. At the time she was a spectator and had never run anywhere in her life. Below is an excerpt from her website. Please Google her and visit Adrianne to discover so much more about this remarkable human being.

“When someone tells you something cannot be done, it is more a reflection of their limitations, not yours” – Adrianne Haslet

Adrianne has shared her story and philosophy with audiences around the world. Over her lifetime, she has transformed to become the powerful woman who bravely stared down evil and courageously faced the man who tried – and failed – to take her life and break her spirit. Adrianne teaches audiences how to look unflinchingly at that which scares you, and how to proceed despite your fears, step by step.
