In the wake of the tragic horrors of the Boston Marathon, 18 members of the Personal Running Solutions Running Club of Jacksonville are set to make their way to Stockholm to compete in the Swedish capital. These determined souls go to show that while you can knock a person down, when they've got heart, it's hard to keep them down.

Although the Boston Marathon tragedy might have altered the course for some runners, 23 members of the Personal Running Solutions Running Club of Jacksonville are embracing a different marathon challenge on Saturday.

They will compete in the 35th ASICS Stockholm Marathon in Sweden.

Of the 60 members of the Jacksonville community that participated in the Boston Marathon, 18 were members of the PRS Running Club.
