Good morning, runners!
The 126th Boston Marathon is set for Monday. A few days before they departed, runners in Guilford County stopped by Fleet Feet Sports in Greensboro to receive well-wishes from store owner John Dewey, the staff and fellow runners.
Several of them also spoke on camera about the race. Jen Goff, owner of In Pursuit Running, offered not only her tips for having a successful day on the course but her memories of racing there in 2012. And runners Keith Gruchacz, Susan Varga, George Bene, Lisa Aponte-Wolff and Kim Gallimore shared their thoughts on what they're most anticipating at this year's race.
