Kelli Wheeler was there a year ago when the bombs went off and the Mason woman will be there again this Saturday. WILX Channel 10 reports that even with a painful injury, Kelli is determined to run those 26.2 miles for those who lost their lives last year and show that you can't stop runners. Kelli was there and was stopped at mile 25 due to the bombings. She was able to run with others who didn't get to finish at the Indianapolis Motor speedway so she got her medal, but it's not the same. The incident haunts her and she is determined to finish the 118th Boston Marathon this Saturday April 19th and we will all be cheering her on!
