Runners Return To Boston Marathon After 2013 Bombing


They've run there before, but it'll be a different Boston Marathon for two runners from right here at home.

Eric Stanley and John Carter are both members of the River City Runners and Walkers club.

They're entered in this year's Boston Marathon, after last taking part in it in 2011.

After last year's tragedy-marred race, they're being told almost on a daily basis about the changes in security for this year's race..

"We're not allowed to have any bags with us," Carter says, "and we're going to be limited on what we can take to the start, whether it be blankets, food. It's whatever we can stick in our pockets, basically."

Stanley and Carter both plan to put the dangers aside and enjoy the competition.

This year's marathon is set for Monday, April 21st.
