Meb Keflezighi won today’s emotionally charged Boston Marathon in a blazing 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds. He’s the first U.S. man to win it since 1983. A little over four years ago, he won the 2009 New York City Marathon, setting a then personal best of 2:09:15. Like in Boston today, Meb’s victory in NYC ended a long drought for American men in the race – an American male last won it in 1982. Here, he’s in the lead pack in Long Island City and wearing the white USA top.
