It’s now been 10 years since the Boston Marathon bombing killed three people and left more than 260 people hurt.

While the race is special to Boston, it draws international attention — with athletes from more than a hundred countries participating.

Representing Virginia is UVA President Jim Ryan.

He ran in Monday’s marathon in honor of the UVA shooting victims.

His Instagram photos show a special tribute to the three football players who died in last year’s campus shooting — Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Junior and D’Sean Perry. Their names were featured on Ryan’s running shirt.
