BOSTON (WPRI) — The crowds in Boston are so proud of the way their community has rallied back, and at Eyewitness News we’re also very proud of one of our own who ran in the marathon.
Susan Hogan’s father Frank was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2007, and fought if off for four years before he passed away.
This year, Susan took to the pavement and chose to run for the Leukemia And Lymphoma Society as part of Team In Training.

She finished the 2014 Boston Marathon in just over 5 hours and 20 minutes. “Just when you’re thinking ‘Oh my gosh I can’t do another step’ people are yelling for you,” she said, “I was thinking ‘Yes I can!’ and I did.”
Susan called the race not just a marathon, but a victory lap for everything their team has accomplished.
