LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Southwest Florida runners who took part in the Boston Marathon arrived home Tuesday evening with stories of horror. Most had either crossed the finishline before the blast or were turned around by other runners who somehow learned of the bombs. Most say they will not let the bombing deter them from taking part in the race again next year. Monday's race was the 117th Boston Maration.
