Rouses Pointers vow to run 2014 Boston Marathon


“I hadn’t planned on running another marathon,” he said. “After this, I feel we have to. I feel I have to do this.

“We’re not going to let these type of people rule our lives. Once we fold to them, it’s just going to keep on going. I want to keep our lifestyle in the United States. Freedom is important to me.

“I’m going to run it, because I can.”

He’s confident he will qualify for next year’s race.

“It’s just a pure sport, so much a grassroots type of sport, it’s such a shame that it happened there ... those innocent people getting killed and hurt,” Gerry said.
