Chelsea runner says he plans to enter Boston Marathon again following tragic bombing

Posted: Updated:

Chelsea runner Randy Lyle took a picture the morning of the Boston Marathon, not knowing the tragic events that would later unfold.

Even at work, he's watching the latest developments in the case as media outlets release information about the suspects and their past. Like the rest of the world, Lyle wants to know their motive.

" I know our law enforcement does a lot and probably has stopped so many more than we'll ever know about it, but looking at the video of these guys just walking through the crowd knowing now they had a bomb in their backpack, it can be pretty chilling," said Lyle.

The Chelsea runner says he won't live his life in fear and plans to enter the Boston Marathon again.

It may not be next year or the year after, but says he will try again.

According to the Associated Press, State police say officers are going door-to-door, but the Boston Marathon suspect is still on the loose. "Col. Timothy Alben of the Massachusetts State Police said Friday afternoon that officers would go street to street as the manhunt for the bombing suspect continues. Gov. Deval Patrick urged residents to continue staying indoors. A pair of brothers is suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer late Thursday, then stealing a car at gunpoint. The suspects' clashes with police began hours after the FBI released photos and videos of them. Monday's bombings killed three people and wounded more than 180 others. Twenty-six-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed overnight. His 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar is on the loose."
