Radford couple prepares to run Boston Marathon for the second time

Posted: Updated:
BLACKSBURG - A Radford couple is getting ready to run the Boston Marathon for the second year in a row, but this time, they are running for a cause. Justin and Kirsten Mosby were well out of harm's way during the marathon bombings last year. But the tragedy made such an impression on the runners that they decided to reach out to that community this year by raising money for the Michael Lisnow Respite Center, an organization near Boston that supports handicapped children and their families.  

Kirsten Mosby says, "I think just in general it will be emotional for me to be there, just to be back and see everything. It's the same course pretty much, but I think it'll also be an opportunity for us to come together and reunite with everyone."

The race will be April 21st this year, which is also Patriots' Day in Massachusetts.
