MASON CITY, Iowa - Monday was the 121st Boston Marathon, and two North Iowans cross the finish line.
Katie Lowry and Tiffany Townsend are members of Next Level Extreme Fitness in Mason City, and they both completed today's competition. Monday's race also marks the 5 year anniversary since the bombing at the marathon, which resulted in 3 deaths and injured several hundred others.
That's why Lowry and Townsend's workout partners back home wore blue shirts during classes on Monday that read 'Iowa Proud - Boston Bound.'
Lowry completed the race with a time of 3:39:16, and Townsend finished with a time of 3:52:48.
