Newtown runner's wife: 'You can't go anywhere'

(NBC NEWS) — Shock waves from the Boston Marathon bombing were felt acutely in Newtown, Conn., which sent a contingent of runners to the iconic race to honor the memories of the 26 students and staff killed in December’s school massacre.

There is no indication that any of the eight runners on the team or others on the sidelines or in the grandstand were injured in the double blast near the finish line, but relatives at home sweated through tense moments until they heard from them.

“It’s terrible to say, but I am just thankful nobody from Newtown was hurt,” said Lisa Abrams, whose husband Tom and nephew Jason Bloom were running.
