GREEN BAY, WI (WSAU) - The former Wisconsin Assembly Speaker is glad to be home after running in the Boston Marathon. Forty-nine-year-old John Gard of Green Bay says he finished well ahead of the bomb explosions near the finish line.
Gard says he was with friends after finishing the race when the bombs went off. He says, "All you saw was chaos."
This was Gard’s fifth Boston Marathon. He finished in 3 hours, 7 minutes. He says the Boston Marathon "will never be the same" after Monday’s deadly blast.
