FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Fond du Lac marathon runner Ted Eischeid says he wants to run the Boston Marathon again.

Eischeid had finished the race about 50 minutes before the first bomb went off.

Even though he was several blocks away, the Wisconsin man says he saw the two blasts.

He was one of the Boston Marathon runners to speak during a memorial service for the victims prior to the Oshkosh Half-Marathon last weekend.

The race last week was his second Boston Marathon and seventh marathon overall.

It was supposed to be his last. But, Eischeid has registered to run in the Fox Cities Marathon in September, hoping to qualify for Boston again.

He says he will run to pay tribute to the victims and the city of Boston.
