Sauk Rapids Man Preparing For Boston Marathon, 1 Year After Bombings [AUDIO]
SAUK RAPIDS - A Sauk Rapids man says he'll have mixed emotions when he runs in the Boston Marathon on Monday.
Tim Wright had just finished the race last year, and was about 2 1/2 block away from the finish line, when the first bomb went off. His wife Brenda was across the street, and kitty corner, from the second bomb.
He says they plan to go down to Boylston street prior to the race on Monday.
He says he plans to run the race slower than he normally would.
Wright says he'll also be thinking of the victims of last year's bombing.
Wright says the Boston Athletic Association has sent out information to the runners on the emotional impact they may encounter. He says they've also tightened security throughout the course.
