“Life shouldn’t be something we get through & purpose isn’t something we attain or discover at some point along the journey. Purpose is what already lives deep inside each of us.”

“So much of what we envision our lives to be gets lost. Or maybe we don’t even allow dreaming in certain areas at all. Instead we stay on the sidelines cheering on all the others who are brave enough.”

“Close your eyes & feel that beat in your chest & vividly picture why you fight. What drives you in this world?”

“Fear is part of the recipe to our own inner strength. Fear can take us to places we didn’t ever think we were capable of if we allow it to push us instead of hold us back.”

“It’s much easier to convince ourselves that we don’t have what it takes rather than leaving our comfort zones long enough to find out. But when we do, we get to see how unstoppable we truly are.”

“True strength is more than the belief that you belong and using your fears to push you further. It also takes the refusal to ever identify yourself as a victim, no matter the circumstance.”

In the Spring of 2013, Rebekah Gregory’s life was forever changed by an act of terrorism that shook the entire world. A bystander at the Boston Marathon, along with her five-year old son, Rebekah was 3 feet away when two bombs went off 14 seconds and 200 yards apart. The explosions claimed Rebekah’s leg, but certainly not her fighting spirit. Since then, Rebekah has become a force to be reckoned with. She has inspired audiences all over the world including the Ambassador of the Holy See in Rome, Italy, the United Nations, Asics, ESPN Women’s, and has been featured in thousands of media outlets which includes blogging for People Magazine and Runners World.

In 2017, Rebekah wrote her first book “Taking My Life Back,” in which she details the attack, and her courageous fight back from pain to finding her purpose. Shortly after, she launched Rebekah’s Angels Foundation, which she and her husband created to provide funding for mental health treatment to children and families suffering from trauma. 

Through speaking and coaching, Rebekah travels the world sharing lessons of strength and tenacity with audiences of all sorts. Through her gift of humor and ability to share from a deep and personal place, she reminds people that while they may never get blown up by a bomb at a marathon, everyone has life blow up in their face. And there is still life to be lived, even if you are on your last leg!
