In this episode:
Kaitlyn Bean is truly a girl with guts. In this episode, Kaitlyn describes a horrific car accident she experienced, one that left her with two broken legs and a crushed heal. Doctors told her that she would, most likely, recover to walk with a limp and that her running days were over. Determined to prove them wrong, Kaitlyn summoned all the mental strength she could muster. Miraculously, exactly one year after her accident, Kaitlyn crossed the finish line of the Livingston Manor Half Marathon!
