Runners in the Tri-State on Monday say they could never imagine that someone would target one of the most prestigious running events in the country.
"Even in Evansville, we have the sheriff's office, the fire department, paramedics, and nurses. They've worked so hard to get there and so many people that are there are spectators. So they're just there to cheer on someone that they love and care about," Gehlhausen said.
The Greater Evansville Runners and Walkers Clubs says 17 runners from the Tri-State were competing in Boston on Monday. All of them are reportedly safe and sound.
