Boston Strong: Local runners compete in 2014 Boston Marathon

Some of the local runners who competed in the 2014 Boston Marathon include (l-r) Joy Keller, Dan Wells, Stephanie Hoff, Tammy Johnvin, Jeff Johnston and Aimee Brugler.

“Boston Strong” was the theme for the 2014 Boston Marathon and the local runners who competed in this year’s race certainly followed through with strong performances.

Following the bombings that marred the 2013 Boston Marathon, security was high for this year’s race. The bombings also brought out the patriotic spirit of the runners and the crowd for Boston’s annual Patriots Day race. Several of the local runners competed at Boston last year and wanted to go back to show their support of the city and its citizens.

Here are the results for local runners who competed in this year’s Boston Marathon:

Dan Wells: 3:25.40

Joy Keller: 3:29.50

Tammy Johnvin: 3:37.31

Aimee Brugler: 3:41.03

Melissa Zajec: 3:46.35

Jeff Johnston: 3:51.09

Stephanie Hoff: 3:52.14
