MILWAUKEE - Marathon runners from Wisconsin, and their families, are reacting to the manhunt in Boston.

The wife of one of the runners says she's been glued to the TV all week, watching the manhunt.

Sarah Krenz couldn't believe what she was seeing, a manhunt for one of the marathon bombing suspects just days after the attack.

“I thought it would be very hard to identify people,” she said. “The fact that they found them so quickly is truly amazing.”

The marathon marked was her husband Gary's ninth time running the Boston Marathon. She said watching things unfold on TV was unnerving to see.

“I was really concerned for the people who were there and concerned for the officers also,” she said.

Krenz her husband have so many questions about why this happened to so many people. She was just a few blocks down from the finish line waiting for gary to come in from his race when the bombs went off.

Krenz said her husband and even friends would want to run the marathon next year to honor those who were injured and lost their lives.
