Locals 'Run For Boston'

Tools

In the wake of Monday's bombing at the Boston Marathon, runners across the nation and the north country are banding together to "Run for Boston."

It was an idea that started on Facebook and spread.

The "Run for Boston" movement encourages people to wear blue and/or yellow, which were the colors of the Boston Marathon finish line.

Before the bombings happened, the Sole Sisters running group was planning on meeting Wednesday for a run in Dexter.

After the tragedy, the group decided to invite the public to participate in a "Run For Boston."

"There's so much sorrow and we just thought if we could find some positive in it, and be able to memorialize the victims and our nation," said runner Diantha Velasquez.

Runners and walkers were welcome to show up and show their support for the victims of the bombing.

"Runners come together. It's just like a bond that you have. Even if you don't know their first name, you find out they're a runner, and it's just an instant connection," said runner Amy Lavancha.

At least 20 people showed up.
