Boston Marathon Blast Survivor Runs Again With New Prosthetic Leg. INSPIRING!

Boston bombing survivor comes out stronger and runs marathon again with her new prosthetic leg.

The Boston bombing that occurred on April 15th, 2013 has left lasting effects on its victims. That fateful day ended tragically, thanks to the Tsarnaev brothers who up a homemade bomb during the Boston Marathon. The blast killed 3 people and injured an estimated 264 others. Rebekah Gregory was one of those who were nearly killed – a survivor whose life was changed forever.

Gregory underwent 35 surgeries and doctors eventually had to amputate her leg in the process. Despite what happened, she never stopped doing what she loves most–running. During this year’s Boston Marathon, Gregory brazenly ran again with her new prosthetic leg, which she fondly calls ‘Felicia.’

After running the last 3.2 miles of the race, Gregory fell on her knees. She was “overcome with emotions,” she told ABC.

Two years ago, Gregory was at the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a bomb exploded. She was lying on the pavement fighting for her life.

After this year’s marathon, she described the experience as ‘absolutely surreal.’She remarked:

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

Gregory just proved to the world that there’s really no stopping a brave and kindhearted woman like her.
