Bob Coll at Eugene Running Company
Bob Coll at Eugene Running Company said two of his employees ran the Boston Marathon. They're both OK, he said. Coll said even though all his friends have phoned him to say they're safe, the event has been emotionally draining. "Just the nature of running a marathon is such an emotional event for people," Coll said. "To have a tragedy unfold as part of the event just magnifies the emotional aspect of it."
