36,000 runners are expected to participate in the Boston Marathon, April 21st

The Boston Marathon is tomorrow, April 21st.
Last year, some of the 5700 runners didn't get to finish the race because of bombings.   

Many of them met at the Hynes Convention Center this weekend to share their experiences.

This year, they say they're looking forward to a second chance at crossing the finish line.
"I cannot wait until Monday when I get to that 26 mile mark."

"You earned the right, and I'm so glad you're all back. This is going to be the safest place on the planet on Monday."

This year's marathon will be even bigger than last year with tighter security.
About 36,000 runners are expected to participate, up from 27,000 last year.
