Dan & Tami Hughes who were running in the Boston Marathon yesterday joined Ed & Steve to talk about the terrorist attacks in Boston yesterday.
Steve asked Tami where she was when the bomb went off. Tami said she had just crossed the finish line and was about 25 yards away from the explosion. She said she turned around and saw the terrifying scene of smoke rising from the crowd. Tami then said that initially there was confusion if it was an attack or a mishap with pyrotechnics at the end of the race.
Tami said it was a horrific scene of people running everywhere and trying to get out of the area.
Steve asked Dan about where he was when the bombs went off. Dan said he was behind Tami by a little bit, and said that police cruisers pulled out in front of them and basically shut down the race from where he was.
Ed asked Dan & Tami if this event was going to effect their lives and if they’ll go to sporting events in the future. Tami said that it does kind of put you back in the post 9/11 mindset of being overly cautious.
Dan also talked about how he was in Tower 4 of the World Trade Center on 9/11.
