Stockton joins ‘Boston Strong’

With a sheriff for a husband, Roane County runner Tara Stockton is used to being around law enforcement.

But even she was overwhelmed by the police presence she witnessed Monday while running in the Boston Marathon.

“It was unbelievable,” she said. “They had every kind of law enforcement you can think of.”

Three people were killed and hundreds of others injured when bombs exploded near the finish line at last year’s marathon.
