For The New York Times; April 2019

Elite athlete and unilateral amputee, Amy Palmiero-Winters, participates in the 2019 Marathon des Sables, a six day 140 mile ultramarathon through Morocco’s Sahara Desert. Along with New York Times sports reporter Jeré Longman, we followed Amy from Long Island to Morocco and through every step of the grueling ultramarathon. She was the first female amputee in the marathon’s 34 year history to finish the race.

Jeré’s beautiful account of Amy’s story can be read here: An Amputee’s Toughest Challenge Yet: Her 140-Mile Run in the Desert
