Miller is an avid runner who has participated in 16 marathons. He said he is thinking of the victims of the Boston bombings, but did not want to speculate.
“Anyone who’s run a marathon knows that the amount of love that is generated by such an event is enormous,” Miller said, thinking of families and causes that are also often tied in to the competition.
He said that he would not be giving up his hobby of running, in spite of the stunning events at this year’s Boston Marathon.
