I found out yesterday a "friend of a friend" who is an avid marathoner (she's run in something like 10 marathons so far this year!) was only a mile from the explosions as they went off yesterday. Thankfully she is also fine. Although this kind of thing is not without precedent, it is still very sad that some person, or people, should do such a despicable thing to anyone engaged in the spirit of competition and sport. I have a feeling this will eventually be found to be the work of some deranged loner.
