Let's celebrate the first American male winner of the Boston Marathon since 1983! Congratulations, Meb Keflezighi! Gutsy race, running from the front against people with faster times. Holding off a late surge to win by 8 seconds! Amazing. I guess they assumed he would die and let him go. Oops!

Also, Shalane Flanagan ran boldly, but probably knew she couldn't hold off Rita Jeptoo, who set a course record.

Really, fearless, strong running by the top Americans today.
