Boston Celtics assistant coach Jamie Young will run in this year's Boston Marathon, one year after a bombing killed three people and injured 264 others.

The Boston Globe conducted in an interview with Young, who confirmed that he was about to go for a run when the bombings happened.

“That’s when I saw all the breaking news,” the Celtics assistant coach told reporters.

This year's Boston Marathon, which is scheduled to take place on April 21, will be Young's first ever marathon.

Thousands are expected to take part in the event, which promises to be an emotional occasion for everyone involved.

Many of Boston's professional athletes are expected to turn out and show their support.

One of the suspected perpetrators of the bombings, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, remains in custody, while his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police last April.
