ASHWAUBENON - Area runners gathered in Ashwaubenon Wednesday evening to show their support for those affected by the Boston explosions.
Just two days after competing in the Boston Marathon, Joe Botticelli of Green Bay wasn't ready to run yet.
"Little sore yet," said Botticelli.
But Botticelli wanted to be with the more than one hundred others who were ready to run for Boston.
"It's absolutely fantastic to see people in the yellow and blue of the Boston Marathon in support of those people," said Botticelli.
Christian Jensen organized the event. He also ran the 26.2 miles of the Boston Marathon on Monday.
"It'll be a slow run, but it will feel good more emotionally than anything, just to get out here to be with people I know and just to be able to have this moment where we can run together and just kind of talk about what happened," said Jensen.
The group of runners either ran 3.1 or 4.6 miles.
"Running is in our hearts and we don't want to give up what's in our hearts," said Katie Bischoff of Green Bay. "I think sometimes with these things fear is in people and we are here together. Like I said we're running brothers and sisters and we're a family. In these events, family comes together and that's what we're doing tonight."
For many, running is the perfect recipe to begin the healing process.
"We want to make that statement to those that organized this attack that they won't stop it and we'll continue to do it," said Jensen.
"We are a united front," said Botticelli. "We are America. We don't just let this lie."
The Run for Boston coincided with Bellin Health's regular training run sessions that take place on Wednesday evenings at the Bellin Health Fitness Center.
