Her recovery has already been encouraging, but now Boston Marathon bombing survivor Roseann Sdoia is hoping her efforts to run again will be an inspiration to others.
Sdoia has been training for months at the track at Natick High School, joined by Jothy Rosenberg. The duo started training in April, one year after the bombing that changed Roseann’s life forever. She lost her right leg above the knee and learned to walk again using a prosthetic limb.

BOSTON (CBS) 11-Sep-2014 – Running represents a freedom for marathon bombing survivor Roseann Sdoia that she hasn’t known since she lost her leg in the attack. She started running seven years ago and always knew she wanted to pick up the sport again.
Now, with a road race on the calendar, a special running prosthetic and an inspirational training partner, she’s pushing herself in a way that is both challenging and incredibly rewarding.
