Runners for Boston convene in La Grange
LA GRANGE – About 300 people assembled outside a running store in downtown La Grange Monday evening, to run for the Boston Marathon runners who were forced to stop.
They arrived outside The Runner’s Soul, 5 S. La Grange Ave., and crossed the street into the evening light, before taking off on a 2.62-mile run through the village’s streets in honor of the victims of the 26.2-mile Boston Marathon, which was cut short April 15 after two bombs exploded near the finish line that killed three and injured more than 200.
A handful of the runners wore yellow and blue shirts from the Boston race. One of them was Charles Wiegand, a manager at The Runner’s Soul, who finished this year’s marathon a half-hour before the bombs exploded. He was in the subway with his girlfriend when they did.
