Last year’s bombing at the Boston Marathon didn’t deter Baker City’s Mike Knutson and Davey Peterson from signing up for the 2014 race — if anything, it encouraged them to go.
“It’s always a celebration,” Knutson said. “This year, because of last year, will be even more of a celebration.”
The 118th Boston Marathon will be Monday, April 21, which is Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts.
