Baton Rouge remembers Boston bombings
BATON ROUGE - The anniversary of the Boston Bombings is coming up and Baton Rouge residents are a part of it.
But for Leo Verde, who ran in last year's race, memories of what happened is something that's difficult to forget.
He remembers how difficult it was for him when the bombs went off.
"I couldn't move one foot in front of the other. And that seemed to be like an eternity. I thought it was hours."
But this year he is determined to return.
"They took something away from me. I'm getting that back. That's going to become the theme of the Boston Marathon."
Verde says to be able to run the marathon is an honor.
