Boston Marathon: Local runners “not afraid” to race

A year after a pair of terrorist bombs killed three people and injured hundreds of others during the Boston Marathon, several Miami Valley runners say they are looking forward to this year’s race. “We’re going to show people we’re not afraid,” said Michael Willets of New Carlisle, who plans to travel to Boston with his family on Saturday, and will run in this year’s race. The marathon is scheduled for Monday morning. More than 36,000 people, including 50 from the Miami Valley, are expected to participate.
