The last time Roseann Sdoia attended a road race, terror shattered the course and left her with a leg amputated above the knee. Thursday night, she’ll be back to sound the starting horn as racing returns to downtown Boston.
'I have mixed emotions because I should be there running, but I’m not', said Sdoia, 45, who has undergone three surgeries since the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing that killed three and injured more than 260 people.
'The race itself symbolizes a lot of the running community and the Boston community coming together and really slowly taking back the city and taking back running', said Cara Bednar, 28, who finished the marathon in under four hours, about 10 to 15 minutes before the first blast.
