The country was shocked this afternoon when reports came in of explosions at the Boston Marathon. We watched the devastating aftermath with confusion, hope, and extreme sadness for those injured. Responders rushed to the scene to aid dozens of injured athletes and bystanders. This annual race is a national gathering which included 41 athletes from Montana. 

We have found reports that the seven runners from Missoula were not injured in the explosion,

As far as we know, none of the Missoula runners have been hurt.”

said Tim Brooker, co-owner of Missoula’s The Runners Edge. [via newstalkkvgo.com]
