BOSTON - Tim Wright of Sauk Rapids was one of several hundred Minnesota runners today (Monday) in the Boston Marathon.

This is the 5th time he's run in the race, and he says a lot of things were the same, like the big crowds.  However, he says security was definitely tighter this year, one year after last year's bombings.

Wright says there was a big crowd of supporters along the route.

Wright says overall the race was smoothly run this year.

Last year he had just finished the race and was about 2 1/2 blocks away from the finish line when the first bomb went off.
