Boston Marathon bombing victims Adrianne Haslet-Davis and Jeff Bauman, both of whom underwent amputations as a result of their injuries last year, were back in Boston at the marathon finish line today.

Haslet-Davis, 33, who posted a photo of the two on Twitter, is a professional ballroom dancer. She gave her first performance since the bombing at the TED conference in Vancouver, Canada, in March, dancing on a specially designed prosthetic leg. They did not run today.

Bauman, 28, attended the race with his fiancée, Erin Hurley. He wore his prosthetic legs and carried his crutches just a few feet away from the man who saved his life, Carlos Arredondo.
