Jony Perez takes a photo of himself near the finish line of Monday's Boston Marathonm, about 90 minutes before the explosions took place. My wife and three daughters were accompanying me at the exact location of the second explosion one hour before. We arrived there at noon to watch the elite runners complete the race. We moved around that same sidewalk to get a good viewing point. About 1:30pm we left the area to get a bite and later we heard the two loud boom's. It wasn't until we got home at 4:35pm that we had realized what was going on. 4/16/2013. We feel so saddened by the loss of lives at the event and wish everyone well.
