A Greece teacher, who took part in the Boston Marathon, never had the chance to finish. Amy Lembo was part of the group of runners who were turned around after the second explosion. 

Many of Lembo's students gathered Wednesday to make sure she had a chance to finish what she started. They placed a makeshift finish line outside Longridge Elementary School and watched as she crossed it Wednesday afternoon.

Nearly 80 local runners took part in the Boston Marathon on Monday.
