In the 26 days leading up to the Boston Marathon on April 21, ESPNBoston.com will share inspiring stories, detail important logistics and go inside the planning for what promises to be an event like no other in the wake of last year's bombings. There are 16 days until the race.

If you’re participating in the upcoming Boston Marathon, your long training runs are probably already over and you’re tapering down. Still, check out the clip above for a little something to get you over that home-stretch hump.

The video, which is about two minutes long and will probably leave you with goosebumps, was produced by a local director (JJ Miller) and plays off Boston’s history as a city that has persevered throughout history.

The video delivers a simple message: #WEWILLRUN.
