Stuart J’s Lens: McKinney’s Paul Vasta Says Experience at the Boston Marathon Will Not Keep Him Away Next Year

By Stuart J. Pearlman, TSB Staff

Paul Vasta and his family moved to McKinney in 2000. His kids attend MISD high schools and they enjoy our little town just like everybody else. What sets him apart, at least this month, is he ran a marathon a week ago… in Boston.

This was Vasta’s first Boston Marathon and will, no doubt, be his most memorable.

Listen in as he relives his personal reality of the events of April 15 and how close to home the bombs actually hit. Also, learn about Vasta’s resolve to return to Boston, “the Big Kahuna,” in 2014.

Stuart J’s Lens provides the opportunity to get to know some of the more interesting people and personalities in and around McKinney. If you think you have a story to tell, or know someone that does, send me an email at and tell me all about it.
