    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Several Ohioans who ran in the Boston Marathon on Monday heard the loud explosions near the finish line that authorities said killed two people and injured more than a hundred.
    Several Ohioans who ran in the Boston Marathon on Monday heard the loud explosions near the finish line that authorities said killed two people and injured more than a hundred.

Runners from Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan were part of Monday's Boston Marathon that was marred by a deadly bombing.  So far, no local runners have been reported injured or missing.  13abc checked the results of the Marathon, where you can search runners by area. 

Here is a breakdown of some of the runners and where they are from: 

  • Maumee – 3
  • Findlay – 4
  • Ottawa Hills – 4
  • Toledo – 8
  • Perrysburg – 5
  • Sylvania – 3
  • Bowling Green – 2
  • Sandusky – 1
  • Fremont – 2
  • Bellevue - 3
  • Monroe – 1
  • Adrian – 3

13abc spoke with some local people who were in Boston for the marathon. 

"During the marathon I felt completely safe and I was telling some people that Boston has the best crowds.  Even when I was running my slowest moment in my race today people were cheering me on and very encouraging and now the city, I hope, they band together in this time of need," said runner Jay Yockey of Riga, Michigan.

"Surreal is a good description.   It just seems like it's on another planet.  It's pretty strange to watch.  As we speak we're probably three blocks away from the finish line.  To see what had been a party and celebration, runners they turn the corner maybe two blocks from the finish line and come down that straight away, big smiles pumped up to finish with all these spectators on the sideline and now to see it cleared out and be an emergency zone is tragic," said Kevin O'Connor, the president of the Toledo Roadrunners Club who is in Boston.  His wife ran in the Marathon.
