Three spectators were killed and more than two hundred sixty injured when two bombs exploded on Marathon Monday, which prompted a massive manhunt for suspects later identified as Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, two brothers from Chechnya, living in Cambridge, Massachusetts. | Photo by Darren McCollester/Getty Images
The two bombs that exploded near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon last April killed three people and wounded dozens. Many Fox Valley marathoners regularly travel the 1,000-mile plus trek to participate in the storied race. Area runners who were at last year’s race recall the explosions and the emotions that followed and how they’re moving on.
