Several Shreveport-Bossier area residents are headed to Massachusetts to run in the 2014 Boston Marathon.

This will be an emotional year, as we remember the bombing from one year ago that left three people dead and 260 people injured.

This year's race takes place April 21, 2014.

Here's the list of locals participating in the event this year:

Tony Bouso, 56 of Bossier City
Shane Huff, 36 of Shreveport
Stephen Mikovich, 47 of Keithville
Laura Nanda, 52 of Shreveport
Bill Peatross, 70 of Shreveport
Lee Stevens, 64 of Shreveport
Tomi Swaim, 45 of Bossier City
Angel Turnbow, 37 of Haughton
Elizabeth Van Savage, 51 of Shreveport
John Van Savage, 51 of Shreveport
Lisa Walter, 47 of Shreveport
Robert Walter, 47 of Shreveport

Good luck to them all. We will be thinking of you.
