Allison Byrne Biography
Allison Byrne, is a marathon runner and bomb victim of last year’s Boston Marathon.
April 15th marks the upcoming anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing. As the city remembers the devastating events that occurred almost a year ago, come hear what it was like to be affected first hand by marathon runner and bomb victim, Allison Byrne. Allison had been running the 2013 Boston Marathon as a way of grieving the recent loss of her only sibling, her younger sister, who had recently passed after a difficult battle with breast cancer. Compounding the grief of losing her only sibling, Allison's 3 year old dog was run over less than one month after her sister’s passing. Allison decided to run her first marathon to honor them both. While the training and race were intended to help in the processing of this grief, no one could have foreseen the unlikely end to her quest to make the finish line. Just roughly 200 yards away from the Boston Marathon finish line, while sprinting down Boylston Street, one of the bombs got in the way of her achieving this goal. Suddenly this active young marathoner found herself unable to move, facing multiple surgeries and uncertain of her future.
Despite the tragic events that spanned 10 months of her life, her spirit is bright and she continues to thrive and enjoy life.
