Kenyans Kirui, Kiplagat Win 121st Boston Marathon

Kathrine Switzer was a few miles into her history-making run at the Boston Marathon on April 19, 1967, when Jock Semple, the co-director of the famous 26-mile race, suddenly appeared behind her and tried to shove her out of the competition.

Rupp was always near the front, and he and Kirui broke away together through the Newton hills. "And then after this year, full-time to the marathon". "[The crowd] really lifted me those last three miles".

Meb Keflezighi's last Boston Marathon.

"I'm looking forward to resting now, and getting ready for the track season", Rupp said.

"The crowd gets you through, and I'm just delighted to come to that finish line", he said.

Buzunesh Deba was anointed the 2014 Boston champion in December - more than two years after the race - when Rita Jeptoo was stripped of the title for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

5 things to know about April the giraffe and her calf
Animal Adventure Park is giving all of April's fans a chance to further their bond by helping to choose a name for her baby. Patch says the baby will stay here until the weening process is complete, which can take about 8 to 15 months.

No women's World Marathon Majors victor has yet been named pending the outcome of a doping investigations into series leader Jemima Sumgong. "I felt I could challenge for the victory - we train at altitude, on hilly courses, so I felt I could run well here".

Rupp's runner-up 2:09:58 finish led an American resurgence at Boston. Five other countrymen cracked the top 10, the most in the prize money era which began in 1986. "It's a real exciting time".

In the women's race, 25-year-old Jordan Hasay ran her first-ever marathon in 2:23:00 to place third.

"It was feared that anything longer was going to injure women, that they wouldn't be able to have children or they somehow turned into men", she told NPR. "The top marathoners all have tremendous track pedigrees". You need that speed to be able to run 2:05-2:06 pace and stay relaxed. You know, we laugh about it now because it's so amusing when a girl is saved by her burly boyfriend. But.

The Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon and one of the most prestigious races over the distance on the athletics calendar.
