An Idalou man finished the Boston marathon on Monday and said after his experience there, he definitely wants to go back.

24-year-old Randal Guinn ran the race, over 26 miles, in 3 hours and 19 minutes.

Today's Boston Marathon winner, Meb Keflezighi, ran a time of 2 hours and 8 minutes.

Guinn woke up at 5:30 a.m. to get to the race, which started at 10 a.m.

He says the security increase was obvious, with security officers stationed all along the course.

Before the race began, Guinn took part in a moment of silence to honor last year's bombing victims.

He says everyone around him was friendly and in high spirits, and the fans reflected the Boston strong slogan.

"There was like an extra boost of energy for me," he said. "The fans would really get you pumped up when you would run through, and when I was down or tired, it was like an extra surge of energy."
