A Boston Marathon bombing survivor is ready to run.
Adrianne Haslet-Davis is preparing to take on the 26.2-mile challenge.
Haslet-Davis lost her leg in the 2013 bombings.
She said she already has an idea of the emotional toll running the 130th Boston Marathon will have on her, but she’s focused on getting physically prepared.
On Monday, Haslet-Davis tested her new running blade, which is a prosthetic made for her by Hanger Prosthetics.
"This is a way for me to give back, not only to physically run the Marathon but also to remember those who don’t have legs who are on the waiting list for Limbs for Life," she said.
The ballroom dancer said she knows all about grueling physical challenges, and her road to the Marathon will be a tough one.
"I don’t think you ever really heal, I think the stages of grieving go on forever, but you can lead a very happy and fun-filled life while healing," she said.
