LR Runners Honor Boston Bombing Victims

Planners say they wanted to remember the victims.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Go! Running store is where some people gather every Thursday for a simple run.
But Thursday, the owner, Erin Taylor,  wanted to do something a little different as a result of Monday's Boston bombing. She decided the group would run the first mile in silence.
"We just wanted to do the first mile of our run together as a group coming together, just to remember people who have lost their lives with the tragedy there," said Taylor.

The run is a source of comfort for Cortney Allison, who ran in the Boston race.

"It's really hitting me harder today. I'm beginning to take it very personally because they were attacking any person, no person in mind. So they were attacking me as much as the poor victims there," said Allison.
