PEORIA -- Two area runners who didn't know each other before Monday met while at Chicago's O'Hare Airport returning from the Boston Marathon. Both were on the same flight from Chicago to Peoria.

Both crossed the finish line about the same time the bombs exploded. Both say they're still in shock. They say meeting one another at the airport brought them both comfort. They say they plan to stay in touch.
