2016 Boston Marathon, Mile 17: It Was Almost Indescribable

Special | 4m 8s

Juan Carlos Gonzalez was yards away from the finish line in 2013 when he saw a puff of smoke. Then someone told him he was bleeding. He was taken to the medical tent and then to the hospital, where he saw others come in missing limbs. Before he got home, he and his partner had already decided that they would run again.
