COLUMBUS -- About 150 central Ohio runners honored the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings by doing what they know best -- they ran in their honor. It was part of a nationwide coordinated run known as BostonStrong(City). Last night's run was BostonStrongColumbus.
The run was much less than the 26.2 miles that make up a marathons, but runners said the message was more important than the miles.
"To let Boston know that they are not alone," said marathoner Robin Muskopf of Powell, who walked along the Scioto River in downtown Columbus with her family and an American flag. She said the bombings last week in Boston at the finish line of the marathon made her angry.
John Cox ran the Boston Marathon in 2008 and led the group run through Bicentennial Park downtown. Similar runs were organized in more than 80 cities in the US.
