Boston tragedy doesn't deter distance runners

(Continued)

The U.S. Postal Service announced Wednesday that all mailboxes along the route of the St. Jude Country Music Marathon will be blocked this weekend out of an abundance of caution. Over 100,000 wristbands with the message “Run Now - Boston 4.15.2013” are being distributed to participants and spectators.

“I’ll be a lot more vigilant,” Poss said. “If I see anything that doesn’t look right, I’ll either pursue it myself or say something to someone immediately because you just can’t take these things for granted anymore.”
