Marathon field expanded

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Marathon will accept an extra 9,000 runners for next year's race to accommodate the 5,633 who were stopped on the course this year when two bombs went off near the finish line.  The expanded field of 36,000 will also allow many who have said they want to run to honor the victims of the bombings that killed three and injured hundreds more.
