Local woman runs in Boston Marathon: 'There was a lot of healing going on'

BOSTON -  The 118th Boston Marathon had about 36,000 runners, many making the journey to honor those killed and injured in last year’s tragic bombing.

One of those running Boston Strong was Yoncalla's own Lisa Frasieur.

Frasieur qualified for the race in the Eugene Marathon back in July.

As a mother of a teenage daughter, says she started distance-training four years ago as a way to relieve stress. She says she's been hooked on the sport ever since completing her first marathon in Eugene.

As for her experience running in Boston on Monday, she says the moment she got off the plane, the mood in town has been nothing but positive and supportive.

“The community here, the people, you could tell. There was a lot of healing going on. Today, going as well as it did, I'm just glad I was a part of it. And I think it will help this town move on,” said Frasieur.

Frasieur said the running condition's today were a little too hot for her blood.

She finished in 3 hours, 34 minutes. She said she plans to celebrate with a big plate of french fries and some white wine.
