BOSTON — Rebekah Gregory lost part of her leg in the Boston bombing in 2013, but that didn’t stop her from running in the Boston Marathon this year.
“This is the day…..I take my life back,” Gregory posted on her Facebook page Monday morning.

She ran alongside her trainer, who is also an amputee, for the last few miles and they crossed the finish line together.
In an emotional finish, Gregory collapsed just after the painted line and embraced the ground as tears streamed down her face.

Gregory had her leg amputated last November, a year and a half after the bombings.
She also testified in the bombing trial against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
