Mike and Cindy Schlitt, pediatricians from Haddonfield, were 100 feet from the finish line when the first bomb went off.
"She ran a PR" - a personal record - "and a 3:55," Mike Schlitt said of his wife. "We were literally ahead of the bomb by four minutes. We crossed the finish and she was exhausted. We stayed at the finish a good couple of minutes so she could recover. Just as we were getting up to start to walk, the bomb went off, and another 20 seconds, another bomb.
"I knew it was a bomb right away," he said. "I looked at Cindy and said, 'That's a bomb.' You could see the smoke. People are just running. People started to run toward the first bomb site. To help people. It was all the medical staff. They all ran right toward the blast, and then there's the second blast. They're telling us to run away as runners. As responders, they're running toward it."
