Crossfit Knoxville organized "Boston Marathon Memorial Run" to honor the victims of last week's bombings.

Competitors ran one-tenth of a marathon, performed three rounds of 26 sit-ups, squats and up-downs, finishing off with a 262 meter partner carry.

While the rain may have made the course a bit more difficult, Mary Cates, a runner, said it didn't compare with what Boston felt almost two weeks ago.

"It's not comfortable, but when you put that into perspective a little bit, a lot of the people that were at the Boston Marathon went through a pretty miserable day and are probably still dealing with the difficulties with that, so I think the rain is probably the least of our concern," said Cates.

Last week's bombing killed three people and injured more than 170 other people. One of the suspected bombers have been moved from the hospital to a federal prison facility at Fort Devens, Mass.
