    Where were you/what were you doing when you found out about the Boston Marathon bombing today?

    I had just hit the gym this afternoon and was on the elliptical machine and started watching the news.... so bizarre for me, because I was also at the gym running on the treadmill when I saw on the news The World Trade Center and subsequent bombings. Almost deja vu-ish for me...

    That's kind of crazy!

    I was at work, and our IT guy sent out an email about it. I was also at work (in midtown Manhattan...) for the WTC but that was a completely different experience.

    coming back from running errands and heard it on the radio in the car. DH was in Boston for work and a couple blocks away. Because of the chaos and cell phone service issues he couldn't contact me for 90 minutes. It was a rough day. I know that part of Boston pretty well (grew up near there) and am still feeling pretty shaken. (Pregnancy hormones really don't help with something like this!) I've been there for the marathon several times before. I was sitting on that sidewalk having lunch with the kids a year ago on another lovely spring morning. It was all I could think about (other than DH) while watching the footage on TV. Thankfully, everyone I know wasn't there this year.
