#BOSTONSTRONG: Minnesotans run to remember

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (KMSP) - About 600 Minnesotans are in Boston on Monday ready to run the 118th Boston Marathon, some for the first time, some returning to finish what they started after the bombings near the race's end killed 3 and injured over 260 people.

Fox 9's Kelcey Carlson completed the marathon in 3:25.23 -- a "slow go," as she put it -- and she caught up with several Minnesotans to see why they, too, are running again today.

About 36,000 participants signed up -- the second-largest registration in the race's history.

Three-time Olympian Meb Keflizighi's win marks the first time an American has taken the title in over 3 decades. The 38-year-old crossed the finish line at 2:08.37.

Rita Jeptoo of Kenya defender her title in the women's division at set a course record of 2:18.57.
