Local Runners Unite in Honor of Boston Marathon Victims

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

Runners gathered in Midtown Mobile with thoughts of the tragic events that unfolded a day before at the Boston Marathon.  Dozens wore black ribbons for Tuesday's scheduled run, dubbing it "Runners United to Remember".

"I'm a firm believer that good overcomes evil.  And the more people you can get together for good.  The less chance you have for evil", said participant Joe Brown.

The group, Mellow Milers, meets every Tuesday night at Mobile's Mellow Mushroom to run or walk through Midtown.
