Shane O'Hara manages the Marathon Sports on Boylston Street, feet away from where the first bomb exploded. He recalled the outpouring of emotion and how the 'Boston Strong' rally cry resonated throughout the community.

"That was the most amazing thing there, was just the outcry of how many people came through these doors." he said, "The carpet was brand new, but after a week it looked like it was three-years old."

O'Hara will be toeing the starting line for the first time in fifteen years.

"I really cannot wait until that moment of crossing (the finish line) and hearing that announcer say, 'welcome to Boston.'"
