    The Mercedes-Benz race will take place April 25 in downtown Miami, with 25,002 participants expected from 844 companies. It will have additional security.

    "We're going to have all the K-9 units of the City of Miami walking the route," Mayor Tomas Regalado said. "We are also going to have the bomb squad and other plans we cannot discuss."

    If authorities ask to search people at the event, they should comply, Regalado said.

    The city will be asking runners not to bring backpacks or big bags, the mayor said.

    "We have to understand that fear cannot control the lives of major cities. We just need to be prepared," he said.

    Huseby said the race will have added security to make sure that its participants are safe.

    After Monday's events in Boston, he concluded, "I look at the world differently now."
