BOSTON -- Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet can check mountaineering off her bucket list.The professional ballroom dancer lost a leg in the 2013 finish line attacks and ran the entire 26.2-mile race last spring. Over the weekend, she scaled Ecuadors third-highest mountain.Haslet reached the summit of 18,996-foot Volcan Cayambe with a team of climbers from the Range of Motion Project. The nonprofit group helps provide prosthetic limbs to amputees around the world who dont have access to them.The expedition summited the snow-capped mountain Sunday.I can hardly put it into words, Haslet-Davis tweeted on Monday.I feel the most grounded I have felt in over three years, Haslet said Monday from Ecuador in a Twitter message exchange with The Associated Press. There is something beautiful about disconnecting from the outside world and connecting with people who are passionate about a cause: gathering around a fire, training together, and bonding in a way you only can without outside influences.Haslet, 36, was cheering for the runners in 2013 when she was injured by the second of two bombs planted among the crowds. Three people were killed and more than 260 others wounded.After the marathon bombings, Haslet vowed to dance again and to run the 26.2-mile race. Having done that, she has been overcoming new obstacles in a quest to raise money and awareness for groups such as the Range of Motion Project and Oklahoma City-based Limbs for Life.Scaling the mountain, though, posed special challenges -- namely, dealing with the elements.It is freezing and you dont know until you are up there how hard it is to ice-pick straight up a glacier, said Haslet, who used the same prosthetic she walks and dances in, plus thick socks, boots and crampons.Although covering the marathon distance was incredibly painful -- Haslets special running leg caused bruising, blisters and swelling -- she said conquering Cayambe was even tougher because it was difficult to prepare at sea level.I couldnt practice in Boston how to climb a glacier at altitude, she said.Haslet grew up camping and hiking with an uncle who has climbed Everest and the rest of the seven summits.These stories around the dinner table were all going through my mind as I climbed, she said.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

He says so-called TRT is only one problem and he wants to go even further than the ban. "Its about time," St-Pierre told reporters at a promotional event in Montreal on Friday. "I think its a good thing. .Y. - Nelson Mandela will be honoured by the New York Yankees with a plaque in Monument Park. Harrison Bader . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Tommy Edman . Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot. American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69. (STATS) - ' ' '
