JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The tragedy of the bombing at the Boston Marathon is being felt on the First Coast.

A woman who lives in Jacksonville and is up in Boston told First Coast News she was tired and shaken up.

She was at the finish line when she saw the explosion and saw people running around in confusion.

She said she thought it was a transformer that blew up at first and said she considers herself lucky

Doug Alred, owner of 1st Place Sports and organizer for the Gate River Run, said the bombings at the Boston Marathon will affect the sport.

"It's going to change the complexion of running," Alred said. "Running events are not inside an enclosed stadium area where you can check security and make sure everybody's OK."
