Linda Ottaviano and Barbara Cronin-Stagnari remember the day exactly.
Linda was a spectator that day. Barbara was running the Boston marathon.
On Wednesday, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty on all 30 counts he faced in the Boston marathon bombing. Three people were killed. More than 250 people were wounded.
That day changed marathons, and runners who were there will never forget.
"Well, I think security has been more intense at the events," said Ottaviano.
Barbara Cronin-Stagnari just weeks later went out there, and ran the Long Island marathon.
"I wanted to run, you wanted to run for them," said Cronin-Stagnari.
As for the verdict today, these women hope it brings closure.
"Hopefully, it brings some closure, you know justice is served," said Cronin-Stagnari.
