Boston, Massachusetts – KGW and FM News 101 traffic reporter Chris McGinness is one of  36,000 runners taking part in the Boston Marathon today, a year after  the race was rocked by two bomb blasts near the finish line. He says ” there’s just an unbelievable energy in this town  that has been here since we arrived and you can  tell people are just genuinely excited for this day.”

Boston Police have double the number of cops on duty and more than 100 cameras have been installed along the 26.2 mile route. Last year’s bombing killed three people and wounded more than 260 others.
