Suni Williams usually runs the Boston Marathon I think. Was she there?

Suni Williams did not run this year; according to Johnson Space Center, she was at the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory on the day of the marathon.
I have heard that at least one astronaut was in Boston at the marathon but was clear of the area before the bombing.
