MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - As the reaction continues in the wake of the Boston tragedy, local groups from all over the country are showing their support.
One of those groups gathered in Mobile on Tuesday.
The Mellow Milers met at the Mellow Mushroom on Airport Boulevard to show support for bomb victims.
Victor Burch who sometimes runs with the Mellow Milers said he like many Gulf Coast participants in the Boston Marathon are still stunned, one day after two explosions changed a day of fun.
"Getting out of the city was a problem. Not being familiar with Boston the route we were planning on taking was blocked by the police due to hospitals, ambulances, and so we spent a lot of time just being lost in the city," said Birch.
Mellow Milers is a group that's been putting on races for four years. The group decided to make their weekly run a little different.
"A lot of runners run with their headphones on and ear pods in. We're going to try to do a silent run where there's no one talking or anything like that," said Brown.
Brown said it's to remember the runners affected and their families. Brown said whether those affected were friends or not, it still hits home.
Runners wore a bib dedicated to remembering Boston and a black ribbon for those who lost their lives and were injured.
"To feel like you can do something that represents someone else, someone that couldn't finish their race and you can finish," said runner Marybeth Badonsky.
It's an inspiration for a community to pull together and remember.
"Any day it could be anyone," said Brown
