Boston Marathon Runners Recall Experiences of ‘Shock’ in Wake of Explosions (Video)

The culmination of one of Boston’s greatest traditions was marred Monday afternoon when two explosions went off on Boylston Street near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

A majority of the runners had already crossed the finish line when the explosions detonated just before 3 p.m., but more than 4,000 had not, and those who remained in the area had difficulty putting the incidents into words even hours later.

“It’s a fun day that should be fun and exciting. And it’s not … it’s not going to be remembered that way,” one runner said.
