      Cyrus Rhode says this week has been the furthest from the trip to Boston he thought he was taking.
        "I was just about ready to finish the marathon and everything just turned over to amazingly hell.  The week went from there," Rhode said.
      He was one of the first turned away from the finish line as he ran Monday, and is now staying just minutes away from the where the suspects were found.
        "Got a call at 6:30  really early in the morning and found there's been a lock down urging people to stay in their house."
        Rhode has done the Boston Marathon 10 years in a row, but says this week it isn't the same place he's used to.
        "Even after the marathon, seeing oh my goodness, so many ambulances and police cars everywhere.  It's almost like the whole place was blaring in sirens and you knew something awful happened.  Really really really awful," said Rhode.
        Now that the search has finally come to a close, Rhode hopes the city and the nation can have closure.
        "This area's been under tension for four days and it'll be good to see things get back to normal."
