LEROY -- An area man is finally fulfilling one of his dreams. Andy Williams will be running in this year's Boston Marathon next weekend.

He qualified during last year's Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon. That was just a week after the tragic bombings happened. Williams says it didn't scare him; it motivated him.

Williams says running is a hobby he picked up seven years ago. His goal for Boston? Finishing in under three hours.
