The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is not your typical marathon.
This is a race with a special meaning.
It is a major fundraising event for the Oklahoma City National Memorial, but it also is way to remember lives lost, or changed on April 19, 1995.
This year there is added significance being that it is the first major U.S. marathon since the Boston Marathon explosions.
