Employees of La Grange running store safe after Boston Marathon explosions
LA GRANGE — Two employees of The Runner's Soul in La Grange reported that they were safe after participating in Monday's Boston Marathon, where two explosions erupted near the finish line more than four hours after the start of the men's race, killing at least two as of Monday afternoon.
Jayne Aspan, owner of the specialty running store, said store manager Charles Wiegand and employee Rich Zappen ran the marathon and notified her that they were OK. Aspan said both Wiegand and Zappen finished well ahead of the time when the explosions went off, but Zappen reported that he was "in the chaos" after the explosions, Aspan said.
"He's a little shaken up, but he's on his way home," said Aspan, who said Zappen has a flight back to Chicago on Monday night.
