New Jersey Man To Run To The Boston Marathon
A New Jersey man who couldn’t finish last year’s Boston Marathon because of the terror attack, is planning on running from Franklin Lakes to the starting line of this year’s race.
Larry Grogin told WABC-TV that he has dealt with survivor’s guilt for the past year since he was unharmed by the tragedy; he also said he thought he was done racing. He changed his mind and decided to run for charity (which he was doing in last year’s race) and added the 250 miles between Franklin Lakes and Boston.
He will run 32 miles a day until he gets there, then run the 26.2 miles for the marathon. The charity he’s running for is Paul Newman’s “Serious Fun” and he’ll be raising money for underprivileged kids to go to camp.
