Following through on a dare, Barbara Tatge kissed a random man during the race. Her daughter wanted to find him. The guy's wife came forward after a picture was posted online. She says she's not mad.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Barbara Tatge's daughter gave her a dare when she ran the Boston Marathon last month - find a random, attractive man on the course and give him a smooch. Tatge kissed and then she told. Her daughter wanted to track down this mystery man, so she posted a picture of the kiss online. And this week, someone came forward - the guy's wife. She's not mad. She says the kiss captures the energy and fun of the marathon. Though, Tatge says she's going to stick to kissing single guys in the future. It's MORNING EDITION.
