“It’s just another day to me,” Fucarile told WBZ-TV’s David Wade.
He said participating in the marathon was a last-minute decision for him, due to a shoulder problem–but he made it. Seeing his friends and family during the race made him a bit emotional.
“I thrive off the support from everybody,” said Fucarile. “The fans, the people that supported me this whole time since my accident, since the incident up here.”MORE NEWS: Baker, Sununu Join Other Republican Governors In Demanding Border Security Meeting With Biden
