Local Boston Marathon Runner Reflects on This Year's Race

He's a bit sore but a Newark Valley man is back home after running in the Boston Marathon Monday.
 
Brian Kupp finished last year's Boston Marathon about an hour before the bombs went off.

This year he noticed more security and more spectators. He said it was an amazing experience to have all of those people cheering him and others on.

"I had a great race up until mile 17 and then mile 19 was OK. then 20 on was a very, very hard race. A

And they could certainly tell I was struggling and everyone was yelling for you and cheering you on. It helps you get through those tough parts of the race," said Kupp.
 
Kupp says his legs are pretty sore now, but he'll see how he feels in a few months before deciding whether to run Boston again.
