BOSTON (CBS) – Ashley McGilloway is ready to take on the Boston Marathon course for the second year in a row. She’s running in memory of her uncle, Fred Abate, who passed away from non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2010.
She made it to about mile 23 in 2013 before the twin blasts on Boylston Street.READ MORE: 9 Injured At Back Bay MBTA Station After Escalator Malfunction
She talks about how hard it was being told to stop, and how at first she actually kept going.
When she realized the finish line had been bombed, she said her heart started racing, and with her family and friends in attendance “she didn’t even know who had went to the finish line.”
