The Oldham Era has heard from friends and family members of several local runners who competed in today's Boston Marathon.
Kathy Riley, of Crestwood, is in Boston with friends Ashli Collins and Andrea Faulk who ran the race.
Riley said the two runners crossed the finish line just moments before the blasts rocked the area. Fortunately, both are safe and unharmed.
Jennifer Jones said via email that her brother-in-law Brian Jones, who also competed, is safe and back at his hotel room.
