Boston Marathon Recap

Hey Bloggy Friends,
Its been a long time, I know. So who either watched or followed the Boston Marathon online??? Here's the cliff notes for those who aren't in the know :).

The winners were both from Kenya. On the men's side, Geoffrey Mutai won with a time of 2:03:02 and for the women Caroline Kilel won with a time of 2:22:36.

For the Americans the top finishers were Ryan Hall (4th-2:04:58). So glad to see him win! I follow him on Twitter and he seems like a cool guy!

On the women's side for the Americans there were two top finishers: Desiree Davila (2nd place- 2:22:38) and my new favorite female runner Kara Goucher (5th place-2:24:52). Not too shabby after just having a baby a few months ago! What an awesome role model!



Several of my favorite bloggers made the cut and had awesome races. The following bloggers ran in the Boston Marathon. If you haven't checked out their blogs please be sure to do so and tell them I sent you!
