Virginia Supreme Court Justice William C. Mims was among the thousands who ran in Monday’s Boston Marathon. He reportedly escaped unscathed as two explosions caused death, injury and havoc at the finish line.
“Justice Mims is back in Richmond and on the bench today,” said his judicial assistant in an email Tuesday morning. A news report Monday said Mims texted “I’m okay” after the explosions that rocked the finish line area of the event.
Mims, 55, completed the course in 3:59:44, according to the Boston Marathon website. He was in 16,020th place, according to data on the website, and 853rd in the 55-59 age group.
