Adrianne Haslet-Davis promised that one day she would run the Boston Marathon. She made the vow while recovering from losing the lower part of her left leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. She was standing among the spectators when the explosions ripped through the crowd. Running with a running blade, she kept her promise this year. She had to rest for an hour at the seventh mile because her stump began to swell, but she persevered and finished the race. –Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell.
