San Diego runner: I have faith in Boston police

A San Diego woman who will compete in the Boston Marathon on Monday described the race scene as "emotional."

Lee Ann Yarbor, who owns the San Diego Run and Tri Club, ran in the race last year when a homemade bomb killed three people and wounded more than 260 others. She is one of 36,000 runners participating in the race this year.

Yarbor said the bomb detonated minutes after she crossed the finish line in 2013.

"I was more determined than ever to get back this year," she said during an interview with 10News. "It's been an emotional reunion for me."

The longtime runner said she's not concerned as security has drastically increased this year.

"I have faith in our police in Boston," she said.
