A local runner is remembering the victims of last year's Boston Marathon bombing that wounded dozens and killed three.
Kevin Gerteisen wanted to be running in the 2013 Boston Marathon but wasn't able to qualify. After he saw the bombings from the event, he knew he wanted to be there this year.
"There's actually ten of us from the area, that I know of, that are going. We're all going to get there, enjoy the time and just relish the memories. Because, with what happened last year, we can't get those times back," Gerteisen says.
The Boston Marathon is on Patriot Day which is April 21.
Gerteisen says his goal for the race is to break three hours. He's already qualified for the 2015 Boston Marathon as well.
