Steven Moore, project manager in chemistry department: "Fun day of joyous unison until..."


Steven Moore, project manager in the department of chemistry and biochemistry, had finished the race and was about five blocks away when he heard the explosion:

"I had finished the race about 1:15 or so before the explosions. My wife and I had some food and drinks and stepped out onto the street a few minutes after it happened. About 5 blocks away. Mayhem. It took us a few minutes to understand what was going on. We had already planned on walking back to our hotel and got within a few blocks of the bombings on our way. Many sullen faces and expressions of shock and anger in the crowds. Such a fun day of joyous unison until an evil coward shows their insanity."

Moore finished the race in 2:49:24.
