BOSTON MARATHON Results! - Meb Keflezighi Becomes First American Winner Since 1983

The 118th Boston Marathon got underway this morning with no incident. With perfect temps and clear blue skies, Meb Keflezighi of the United States won the Men's division and was the first American to win Boston since 1983. He said, "It was my dream to win Boston and to make it just like the Red Sox did and do the same thing for the people."

Winning the women's field was Rita Jeptoo of Kenya, who set a course record of 2:18:57 - her third on this course (2006, 2013, 2014). She's the fastest women ever to run from Hopkinton to Boston.

American Shalane Flanagan gets a PR of 2:22:02 and finishes 7th. Although she "ran everything [she] had in [her] today, she reports, "I'll be back to run here until I win it."
