Almost a dozen runners came together Sunday to finish what they started nearly two weeks ago, The Boston Marathon.

Due to the unusually cold and rainy weather, thousands of runners were forced to drop out of the race. A pregnant runner, Ally Wagner, had to drop out at mile 18 on race day due to hypothermia.

Wagner said she didn’t want to risk her health.

So, she decided to organize a "Marathon 2.0" where runners who couldn’t finish on race day could finish together Sunday. Wagner said somewhere between 50 to 70 people showed up to cheer the runners on.

"I had to drink more water because I’ve been shedding so many tears along the route, it’s just so inspiring," Wagner said.
