Decorah runner wants to show her support for Boston


A Decorah woman is showing her support to the Boston Marathon by strapping on her running shoes, and you can join her Tuesday in Decorah.

The privately-organized event was thrown together by Jeni Grouws. Everyone is welcome to join in the 30-minute run starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Whippy Dip Ice Cream Shop in Decorah.

"In that 30-minute period of time, we're going to try to show the people of Boston that we are concerned about what's going on, and we absolutely are there in spirit," Jeni Grouws said.

The informal run/walk ends at Don Jose's.
