Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost a leg during the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, but it hasn’t stopped her from competing.

The brave runner told TMZ Sports that her motivation to keep going is the memory of those who didn’t end up as fortunate as her.

“I’m running for those who can’t run and those that are being attacked ruthlessly by these cowards and I’m really happy to be doing that,” she said. (VIDEO: NESN’s Boston Bombings Tribute Video Will Make You Proud To Be An American)


Haslet-Davis, who has a prostetic leg, trains with a grueling workout regiment that includes boxing and running on the beach. She is set to compete in the 2016 Boston Marathon.
