"This is it! Prayers go out to all of the runners! To my Tulsa friends, run like the wind! I'm so proud of you!" she posted Monday morning.

Chera didn't run the Boston Marathon last year, but she ran it the year before. Several of her running mates did run it last year so the event will be very emotional for them. Running a marathon is a huge personal accomplishment, but the runners say it's just as important to them to show support for the Boston community after last year's terrorist attack.
