Last year's bombing hardly ruins Boston Marathon for local doc, son

This year, Norwalk physician Dr. James Kasten had just a fleeting thought at the site of the Boston Marathon.

But the thought about a repeat terrorist attack raced from Kasten's mind -- maybe as fast as some of the 36,000 runners were moving toward the finish line during what Kasten described as a spirited, exhilarating Boston Marathon.

His son —James Kasten Jr., a 2006 Norwalk High School graduate and Ph.D. computer science student at the University of Michigan — high-fived children lining the route.

A story about the performances of both Kastens in the Boston Marathon was published Tuesday in the Norwalk Reflector.
