Springfield Runner Plans To Keep Racing; Vows Not To Let Boston Bomber ''Have The Last Word''

A Springfield-area resident who participated in Monday’s tragic Boston Marathon says he’s determined to race again, despite the chilling effect of the bombings near the finish line. 


Richard Sgro says he traveled to Boston to meet up with high school friends from around the country.  He finished the race an hour before the bombs went off and was in a café nearby when the blasts occurred. 


He says he understands that security will be beefed up at future races, but is also determined that the races will go on. Sgro says he, quote, “won’t let [the bombers] have the last word.” 


Two explosive devices detonated near the finish line of the race Monday, killing three people and injuring dozens of others.
