Sports columnist Greg Hall is back in Kansas City after running in the Boston Marathon, but he still struggles with the trauma after the bombings.
He said other runners are also re-living those horrifying moments.
"All of us are dealing with sleep issues and fits of crying, I'll be just flat honest," Hall said.
He is glad that authorities have identified suspects. He said he wonders if the bombers were near him or his friends as they were running. He said he is particularly disgusted that the suspects placed their bombs near children.
"We went from an incredible celebration and festive mood to policemen who were there to direct traffic and the many things they do for a road race now they had their guns drawn to protect us," Hall recalled.
Medical professionals went from hydrating exhausted runners to amputating limbs and making tourniquets. Hall spoke to one doctor who described amputating one runner's legs.
Despite the tragedy, Hall will return again in the Boston Marathon.
"After this, there is no way, no way in heck I'm not going back to Boston," he said. "I will run again."
He said he agreed with the sentiment in President Barack Obama's address at an interfaith prayer service. He said the message that Boston will run again was one that resonates.
