Joey McIntyre from New Kids On The Block, Ethan Zohn from “Survivor” and Olympic gold metalist Summer Sanders were among the runners of the Boston Marathon yesterday. They all crossed the finish line before the bombs detonated and are all okay.
There was an explosion by the finish line about 5 minutes after I finished- I’m ok but I’m sure there are many hurt.

Can anyone tell us what happen near the marathon? Felt two BIG booms that shook our hotel and saw smoke on Boylston.
