Alumni counselor Meb Keflezighi wins the Boston Marathon - first American to win the Marathon in 30 years! "Boston Strong. Meb Strong." With those words resounding in his head through the closing miles, Mebrahtom Keflezighi won the 118th Boston Marathon, becoming the first American man to do so since Greg Meyer in 1983. There was an ironic beauty in the fact that, on race morning, Meyer was among those who wished Meb well. He told me, "You can do it," the newly crowned winner explained. "Make it happen."
Alumni athlete Ryan Hall (running with Alumni Counselor Meb Keflezighi) takes 20th at the 2014 Boston Marathon. Great job Ryan!
