SC Woman Runs National Race For Boston Bombing Victims

Elizabeth Gray is all dressed up with nowhere to go. She should be training.

"It's 336 stages all the way from LA to Boston, I'm running stage 241 in Dayton, OH. Mine is about 10 miles," Gray said.

The One Run For Boston Relay is all about raising money for the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing and Gray is a unique runner.

"I'm the only resident from SC, I'm representing the Gamecock Nation, baby," she said.

The former Marine swore she'd never run again, but something in her past made her change her mind.

"I started running as a form of healing from a domestic violence relationship I was in and ever since I ran my first race in February of 2010 I've been non-stop running," Gray said.

Gray remembers watching the Boston Marathon bombing on television and all of her anger turned into something positive.

"What it did do, it just made me want to run harder, run faster, run more races because the number one thing we have to realize is that we can't let these terrorists affect us. The Americans have to show that love overcomes hate," she said.

Gray hopes to reach a $1,000 donation goal. She'll begin her leg of the race on April 6th at 5 a.m.
