Boston bombing inspires St. Louis woman to run first marathon

CREVE COEUR, MO (KTVI)– The tragic Boston Marathon touched people around the world.

Jessica Ciccone trained at Forest Park every weekend since October to get prepared for her first marathon. She`s from Creve Coeur and was a sprinter back in college. She told me she never dreamed she`d be running a marathon, but on April 15, 2013 something changed her mind.

It was a moment many couldn`t believe was happening, even for Jessica who was at work.

The Boston Marathon hit a little too close to home for Jessica because a few years ago Boston was her home. After she graduated Mizzou she worked as a TV producer in the Boston market for a while and when she got the news. She immediately grabbed her phone.

It was especially hard for her husband, who is from Boston, and worked with many runners who were injured in the bombing. Jessica made a decision right then and there to run in the next marathon.
