EDISON - A Tinton Falls couple is safe tonight after surviving the bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Rob and Christy DeFillipis were in Boston Monday afternoon. Christy DeFillipis was running the race and her husband was there to cheer her on. They were about a block away from the explosions.

Rob DeFillipis, who co-owns the Runner's High in Metuchen and is the head track coach at Red Bank Catholic High School, reached out to his friend Mike Mooney to tell him they were okay.

"All of a sudden there was a loud explosion, unlike anything I ever heard before," Rob DeFillipis told News 12 New Jersey. "Nobody knew what was going on."
