BOSTON -- A UI professor reacts to the marathon explosions through email. Martin Gruebele says he finished well ahead of the explosions but still got caught in the chaos.

He says, "On the Blue T subway, I talked to a woman running with bloody legs who was blown to the ground just as she was crossing the finish line. She thinks a spectator standing behind her blew up. As for me, I hope that's my closest brush with bomb terrorism."
