Toledoan Jake Guthrie joined Team Hoyt at the Boston Marathon in 2010.
Team Hoyt is a nationally recognized organization led by a father and son team who have participated in road races for more than 30 years supporting kids with disabilities.
The son, Rick has cerebral palsy. His father Dick, pushes him in all the races.
Guthrie says last year's Boston Marathon was going to be the two-man team's last race. The duo couldn't finish the marathon because of the bombing. They were forced to stop around the 23 mile mark.
Guthrie was invited back this year by the Hoyts to not only be a part of their final race, but, to return to the city which was forced to come together last year because of the tragedy.
"You're celebrating the city of Boston coming together, it's helping those families to heal by seeing all these people show the love and support and at the same time this will be very special to be a part of the Hoyts' last race," said Guthrie.
Guthrie says the Hoyts have inspired him and his employer, Bar 145 to give back to the Hoyt foundation and to other organizations here in the Toledo area.
Taking a tragedy and turning it into something inspirational is what Guthrie says he and other runners plan to do.
Guthrie says crossing the finish line on Monday is something he will never forget.
