Also available on the nbc app

46-year-old amputee Jacky Hunt-Broersma has broken what could be a new world record. Hunt-Broersma is the first woman to run 102 marathons in 102 straight days. The sport never crossed her mind until she lost her lower left leg to cancer in 2001. Hunt-Broersma has raised over $40,000 Amputee Blade Runners to provide amputees with running blades.
