More than a dozen Mid-Missouri runners took part in the Boston Marathon today that was marred by bombings, with reports of two deaths and almost two dozen injured.

Two explosions went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday afternoon. Like people all across the country, many of those from around mid-Missouri are responding with Tweets of prayer.
