CORPUS CHRISTI -- About 25,000 people turned out for the 38th Annual Beach To Bay Marathon.
Onlookers cheered as the runner made the 26.2 mile journey from North Padre Island to McCaughan Park on Shoreline Drive.
Security was a lot tighter in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings last month. Police had bomb-sniffing dogs on hand. Helicopters provided aerial surveillance.
