    The Dallas Running Club ran with a special bib Tuesday night in honor of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

    For most runners, a bib is more than a number; it's a way to remember the race they've run.

    On Tuesday night, the bib had the date of the Boston Marathon -- April 15, 2013 -- the Boston skyline and, below it, the words "Runners United to Remember."

    A few dozen Dallas Running Club members ran around White Rock Lake to remember those affected by the bombing. There was no set amount of miles, and they went at their own pace.

    Gerry Smith, of Mesquite, said there is always a bond between runners. Something like this definitely brings the running community closer, he said.

    "I wanted to run because I wanted to run in memory of people that ran the Boston Marathon," he said. "I also ran three miles for the three people that died -- a mile for each one of them."

    Many of the runners said their dream of running the Boston Marathon is still alive, despite the tragedy on Monday. Runners never quit, a club organizer said.
