Description (optional)

Series of text messages exchanged between me and my friend. I was watching the marathon and was outside of Forum when the second bomb exploded. I ran through the bar, out the back, and kept going until I got to Cambridge. Halfway there, I noticed my back was bleeding and I texted my friend, who lives in Somerville, to come pick me up and bring me to Somerville Hospital.
