Boston Marathon

Tom Brady thanks Adrianne Haslet for being an inspiration

Haslet, who survived the 2013 bombing, is running in the 2016 Boston Marathon.

Adrianne Haslet has yet another admirer. She can add Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to her list of “biggest fans.”

“Two years ago I was lucky enough to meet Adrianne Haslet, a survivor of the 2013 Marathon bombings,” Brady wrote on Facebook Monday. “She’s on the course now, running the race for the first time — with a prosthetic leg. Adrianne thank you for being my inspiration!! #BostonStrong.”

Haslet is the ballroom dancer who lost a limb during the Boston Marathon bombing. Haslet will run to support Limbs for Life, a nonprofit providing prosthetics and care to people in need.


“To think I’ll have my own marathon bib,” she told last week. “There are so many people in Boston who want to do this and are so excited. You can feel it in the air right now.”
