We’re All One With Boston Today
Regardless whether you're a Yankee fan or part of the Red Sox Nation, we're all one with Boston today during the 118th running of the Boston Marathon. With the tragedy of last year still a vivid memory, the whole country is one with the thought of Boston - B-Strong.
I wore a Boston Red Sox hat today and proudly posed in front of the B - Strong poster that I received last year, days after the Marathon at Fenway Park. That poster has hung in my office ever since.
And here are the results of this year's Marathon, according to cbssports.com:
"Rita Jeptoo repeats with a course record time of 2:18:57. It's her third career Boston Marathon title, also winning in 2006. Shalane Flanagan, who lead for the first half of the race, finished seventh with a personal best time.
Meb Keflezighi makes history, becoming the first American man to win the Boston Marathon since 1983 after holding off a late charge from Wilson Chebet. Keflezighi fist-pumped through the final meters before reaching the finish and bursting into tears."
