LOVELAND, Colo. -- Nearly a year after two bombs exploded during the Boston Marathon, Colorado runners are preparing to return to the race that is expected to be watched worldwide.
"I'm super excited it's going to be a great year," said Nicole Fellure, a Loveland mother of two who is looking forward to returning to Boston even after the tragic events of the 2013 race.
At least four runners of the group "Loveland Road Runners" are expected to travel to Massachusetts for the April 21 event.
The City of Boston and marathon organizers are expected to have extra security for this year's race but Colorado runners believe the event will focus more on celebrating a sport than domestic terrorism.
"It's going to be bigger than it's been in the past and I just think there's going to be a level of excitement that hasn't been there in the last few years," said Kevin Lemasters.
