One of Boston.com's marathon bloggers, Jacqueline Palfy Klemond of Sioux Falls, SD finished the Boston Marathon just 18 minutes before the first explosion Monday. A newspaper editor at The Argus Leader, Palfy Klemond's journalism instincts took over and she started asking questions, using her smartphone to capture the interviews on video.
Above is her account of the aftermath of what happened and then check out what witnesses in the area told her.
- Steve Silva, Boston.com senior producer, two-time Boston Marathon sub-four hour runner.
- Ty Velde is a 16-time Boston qualifier who's completed 12 consecutive Boston Marathons and 25 marathons overall. Ty is now training for his 13th Boston run and will provide training tips for those who train solo and outside, no matter what temperature it is.
- Rich 'Shifter' Horgan is a 19-time Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team member who runs in honor of his father, who died of colon cancer.
