Rochester runners honor Boston victims


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- While people across the country are still dealing with the aftermath of Monday's bombings in Boston, here at home, a group of runners took to the streets of Rochester Tuesday to show support for all those affected by the tragedy.

The group of four honored those killed in the blast Monday by waving a flag as they ran on the sidewalks on U.S. 63 in Rochester Tuesday, sending a clear message to passersby of one of the busiest areas in Rochester.

Across Minnesota, runners gathered to honor those affected by the tragedy. According to KARE-TV, turnout for Tuesday night's run club at Marathon Sports in Minneapolis nearly doubled in size.
