Runners from Cleveland to finish trek to Boston on Saturday

Posted: Updated:
BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (Times Free Press) - Johnny Clemons got out of bed and ran a 26.2-mile marathon today — for the eighth day in a row.

Clemons is one of about 30 runners who left Cleveland, Tenn., on April 12 for a roughly 1,000-mile relay run to Boston to raise funds for two charities there in honor of victims and survivors of last year’s Boston Marathon bombing.

They expect to end their trek at 2 p.m.on Saturday in Boston.

Dubbed the Run Now Relay, most of the team has taken turns running 5 or 6 miles a day while passenger vans haul resting teammates.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.
