Local man is running the Boston Marathon after he wasn't able to finish it last year

A Santa Maria man is headed back to Boston to compete in the marathon that was cut short last year. Erich Gross ran it last year, but didn't finish before the two bombs exploded. He says he was around the corner from the finish line, when the tragedy happened. Gross will be 69-year-old when he heads to Boston. Gross say he runs the marathons to raise money for the Special Olympics, and he hopes to raise $20,000. If you want to donate, click here.
