Beckley man among top finishers at Boston Marathon

Posted:

BECKLEY, W.Va. (WVVA) Through the frigid cold and blazing hot temperatures over the last year, Beckley runner Nick Massey has been up with the sun to train.

Massey was training to get ready for the world-renowned Boston Marathon, which he completed over the weekend. He placed in the top 2,500 of 30,000 runners. 

Massey's wife and two children were there to root him on, waiting for him after he finished the race. In an interview with WVVA News on Wednesday, he described those final moments as he crossed the line. 

"I knew I needed to get warm, so I was focused on that. There was a little walk to where you get warm and I was very emotional." 

Massey finished the race under three hours and five minutes. Way to go, Nick.
