We're hearing lots of stories from Central Coast runners who were in Boston for the marathon.
Erich Gross was there for the race, but didn't finish before the two bombs exploded.
Gross says when the bombs went off he was just around the corner from the finish line.
His first thought was that he heard fireworks. When he found out it was a bomb, he immediately thought of his son who was waiting for him to finish the race.
Gross told KSBY, "This the most peaceful thing that you can have you run against time you run with people from all nations and it takes a very deranged mind to do this what they did one person, two person I don't know."
Gross runs marathons to raise money for the Special Olympics. So far, he's raised about $7,000.
