Well now that all of the excitement from the 2017 Boston Marathon is over, I thought I would share some of my favorite moments from yesterday.
• Kathrine Switzer, first woman to officially run Boston Marathon, competes again.
• There were three American men in the top 10!!!
• Meb Keflezighi took 13th place and at 41 years old he finished in 2:17:00. He is the happiest person ever and I was definitely in tears when he crossed the finish line. He says that this will be his last competitive time running Boston. He was the 2014 winner of the Boston Marathon.
• When Edna Kiplagat (the women’s champ) accidentally grabbed the wrong water bottle she took it back to the water table and then went on to get her water bottle at the next table. What great sportsmanship!
What were some of your favorite moments from yesterday’s race?!
