Local runners motivated by Boston

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

With only 10 days until the Glass City Marathon, local runners say their hearts are heavy for those affected by the blasts in Boston, but they hope runners will use it as motivation to lace up together to show support.

"The thing that's great about runners is that we're all one," said Jeff Taylor. "We're going to reunite as one and pull together."

Taylor has been helping 240 people over the last 16 weeks for the Glass City Marathon. He says they plan to lace up, leave fear behind, and pound the pavement even harder – for those that can't anymore.

"I think this is a great opportunity for us, as a community, to come together," he said. "The Glass City Marathon is a great non-profit organization. They've put on some tremendous events in the past. I know that they've got everything in place…for this to be a great event here next Sunday."
