PHOENIX -- Runners filled the streets of downtown Phoenix Sunday morning for the annual 3TV Phoenix 10K & Half Marathon.

“I do have a medal. I finished in ... just under two hours," said Beth Deloria, who has a medical problem with her ankle and thought she would never run again. "When I get to a starting line, I feel like I've won the marathon already, you know, because I feel so lucky to be back out here. Paralyzed and I'm able to run thanks to technology that's out there.”

In its 39th year, the Phoenix 10K is the longest running marathon in the state of Arizona.

“It was great, weather was great, great day for a run,” said Charles Yi, who beat his personal best, finishing the 10K in one hour and 10 minutes. "The hardest part was leaving my front door, just getting my butt out here."
