Stocktons hope for bomb-free Boston Marathon this go-round

-A A +A

Tara aims to finish the race this time

By Damon Lawrence

Tara Stockton was within a half-mile of completing the Boston Marathon last year when bombs exploded near the finish line. The race was halted and she never got to finish.

Stockton will get another chance later this month.

“The runners that weren’t allowed to finish, they gave us another invitation,” she said. “I’m excited at getting another opportunity to go.”

This year’s Boston Marathon is scheduled for April 21. Stockton said last year’s terrorist attack didn’t make her apprehensive about going back.
