Tracy Copeland leaves Thursday to prepare for the Boston Marathon on Monday.
Since receiving the transplant at the age of 34, she tells us it's been a surreal experience.
Her liver failed suddenly back in 19-98 for a unknown reason.
19-year-old Terry Snow donated his liver after he was killed in a motorcycle accident and Copeland was the recipient.
She met the Snow's family a year after her transplant, and they've become close.
