VIDEO: Marathoner Reacts to President’s Speech

“This time next year the world will return to this great American city to run even harder and cheer harder than ever,” said President Obama. 

One attendee of the ceremony, Cheryl Babel, a school teacher in Danville, California, said that although she doesn’t live in Boston, she was moved by the ceremony. Watch her reaction in the video above.
