ALYSSA LORING | stage 336 | MA
I'm running because the 2013 marathon changed a lot of lives, including mine. I've chosen to run the last leg of this for my sister Brittany, who was severely injured at the marathon last year, and all of the amazing survivors, EMTs, and civilian first responders I have met because of that day. I'm thankful for the support my family received from friends and strangers after last year's marathon, and I'm so excited to run the last leg of this epic journey!
