Boston Marathon security
It's been a year since the Boston Marathon bombings and this year's race is set for April 21st.
Five local runners at the marathon last year are making their way back for a second chance at the finish line.
Last year, some of the 5700 runners didn't get to finish the race because of the bombings.
The two blasts were 12 seconds apart near the finish line.
They killed three people and injured 264 others.
None of the runners from our area were hurt physically, but their memories will never go away.
Cherie Epstein, "It was surreal, kinda like you were a spectator in a movie, bomb squads all over the place, panic, deep sense of sadness."
Evan Malone, "You can't just let go, that was taken away, I'm not carefree anymore, nor will I ever be, I had plenty of races in following weeks, where that was in the back of your mind."
This year, there will be an extraordinary level of security.
They're expecting 36,000 runners and possibly a million spectators tomorrow, for the 118th running of the Boston Marathon.
