    Are any of our folks there?

    So far just heard reports of two explosions and injuries, but no specifics.

    Here's the thing: We don't know if it's over, yet.

    We've all felt the comraderie with other runners at events, whether we know them or not. This is a sad day for our sport. I anticipate hearing from my friends, and I pray for those runners and spectators involved.

    They are now saying that because of the type of devices used it is in line with a terrorist attack.

    Yes. Unfortunately, these are not accidental explosions. News is saying that these are similar in deployment as IED's.

    As for who would target a race, I'd say to back the focus out a bit and ask: Who would target a large gathering of people? Someone who was trying to make a point and scare the sh!t out of us, which - to their credit - they have.

    I had to turn off the news for a bit...When 9/11 happened, I bought a case of Sierra Nevada and sat on the couch drinking beer and re-reading my Bloom County books.

    So sad that these scum that do these things pick such positive events to demonstrate their negativity. Lets hope they are caught and are dealt with appropriately.
    I've been watching it on the early morning news here.
    Best wishes to all the runners and any barefoot runners in the run today and they got back safely.

    Sad, sad. I guess the bomb went off at the 4:09 mark. Anyone who hadn't finished was stopped well back. Pictures are pretty horrific. Aerial shot of the blast site showed lots of debris and lots of blood stains on the concrete.
