Boston Marathon photo shoot

The Boston Marathon is just over a week away and city leaders say security will be a top priority.

Three people were killed and more than 200 injured, when two pressure cooker bombs went off during last year's race.

Today, where the bombs went off in 2013, runners and first responders gathered to celebrate the city.
 
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it only takes one to express this: "strength."

Marc Fucarile, marathon survivor: "We're strong, you know, that we bounce back no matter what."

Marc Fucarile lost a leg during the Boston Marathon attacks now he's walking with a prosthetic, getting married and smiling broadly at the marathon finishline for the cover photo of Sports Illustrated.

Mayor Marty Walsh, Boston "We're feeding off the energy of all the survivors and there's a lot of energy.  There's a lot of sadness too and we're not gonna forget that as a city and we can't ever forget that."

The magazine that brought us this image last year during the attacks, wanted to revisit the city one year later.

Chris Hercik, Sports Illustrated "This Boylston street was filled with destruction and chaos, this year we wanted to highlight the resiliency of Boston."

Asking people to wear Boston gear and show up, it didn't really know what to expect.

"cheers"

3,000 people turned out!
Filling the road standing on sidewalk to sidewalk.
These folks among the first, taking their spot right up front.

Ryan Casey, Northeastern U. student, "We're here to show that we're not gonna let us get us down and we're gonna be strong as ever."

Brenden Carney, Boston EMS, "Sometimes we are operating in the background and are taken for granted, so it's great in the photo shoot we are going to be right up in the front line."

Carlos Arrendondo, marathon hero, "The city of Boston has been healing from all this tragedy and how we are really very strong."

It was a picture perfect day in every way.

"Coming back to the finish line good practice for the survivors who plan to attend the marathon again this year.  As for the magazine, SI says it will hit stands April 16th."
