Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- One runner taking part in the full marathon was just 1 mile away from crossing the finish line in Boston when the first bomb went off on April 15th.

David Corbett is from Boston and has taken part in the Boston Marathon several times.

He signed up for the Fargo marathon last year, and says this race will mean much more to him after the events he experienced.

David Corbett- Running Full Marathon: "It goes to show how far reach it has, you know that Mark has the poster signing, he's selling these wonderful wristbands and it's just nice to see how much it's brought the running community together."

Corbett says he will run the Boston marathon again next year.
