Congratulations to Meb Keflezighi, the first American winner since 1983!

Boston strong!

So proud of everyone who participated in the marathon and supported the runners this year. And delighted that the men's winner is an American this year! I'm pretty happy that he's a Californian, too, but s'pose it wouldn't have hurt if he was a Bostonian. :)

Can't write my story

No matter how you shake my core
'Cause my roots, they run deep, oh

When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time,"
But still I rise
This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in, think again
Don't be surprised, I will still rise

It's also a victory for older athletes, as he is 38 (almost 39, actually).

Beth was at the race, though she did not run this year.
