Some of them understand the brutal dedication it takes to run the Boston Marathon.
Some of them have no idea what it feels like to run a 5K without stopping to catch their breath.
Some of them feel broken and injured by the bombs that exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 150 others.
