(Las Vegas, NV) — The bombing at the Boston Marathon brings back vivid memories for a Las Vegas couple.
Attorney Marcus Smith and his wife Casey were in Boston one year ago. Casey ran in the marathon. She finished the race and the couple were a block a way when they heard the first explosion. Marcus tells the Las Vegas Morning News that was confusing , but when they heard the second it was obvious something terrible had happened.
The couple spent several days in Boston after the tragedy, and have wonderful feelings about the city and it’s people. But, Marcus says when he thinks about that day there’s a churning deep in his stomach, a terrible feeling.
The Smith’s are planning to stay home in Las Vegas, this race day.
