NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – This Sunday is the City Parks Foundation Run for the Parks 4-mile race in Central Park and the bombings at Monday’s Boston Marathon are certainly on the minds of the runners.
Runners in the New York Road Runners event have received clear plastic bags for their belongings and a warning that security will be stepped up for the race.
That made runner Brian Saltzer feel much better. He’s from Boston and ran the marathon.
“I finished. It was a great day. It was a great race. I was on top of the world. At my friend’s apartment. He’s on Commonwealth. So, we went around the corner. I was in the apartment, and the explosions happened,” he told WCBS 880 reporter Marla Diamond.
