NYACK - A Nyack man is returning to Massachusetts to complete his 10th Boston Marathon.

Patrick Parietti crossed the marathon's finish line last year just before the bombs went off, but says he won't let fear stand in the way of running again.

Parietti, a Nyack Middle School teacher, says he's heading back to Boston to show his love for the city, its people and the victims of last year's terror attack.

The 54-year-old will be tweeting pictures before, during and after the marathon on Monday.
