James Kasten Jr. said he feels relieved he ran the Boston Marathon as fast as he did.

An hour slower or so, and he and family members could have been injured or worse in Monday's bombing.

Kasten, his sister, Victoria and their father, Dr. James Kasten of Norwalk, were on a tram, a couple miles away from the finish line when the two bombs exploded.

Glad they are ok.
Wasn't he suppose to run in the NYC marathon? The race was called off because of the hurricane?


Remember last time with the Dr. JMOP?
