It has been a year since the deadly Boston Marathon bombings.

A U.K. Professor who ran the race in 2013 will soon return to Massachusetts to run again.

Three people died and about 200 others were hurt last year when two bombs went off near the end of the race.

One suspect was killed and another was arrested in the deaths.

Professor Frank Romanelli had originally planned to run his final Boston Marathon in 2013.

He said he had finished the race last April and was in his hotel when he started receiving texts from friends who were worried about him.

When Romanelli learned about the bombings, he said he made a resolution to return and run again. 

He will race among a reported crowd of about 36,000 runners next Monday.
