Run the Boston Marathon, Virtually

CORPUS CHRISTI - If you want to attend in the Boston Marathon, but can't make the trip, you can participate now...through your phone.

A new app called "Boston Marathon World Run" connects runner's from around the world to the marathon, allowing you to participate virtually.

Runners can log their miles into the app on the day of the race, and interact with other "virtual runners" in the process.

The app also allows people to donate to "One Fund Boston," a charity aiding victims of last year's bombings and their families.

The app is available for iphone and android devices.

The marathon will be held on April 21st, 2014.
