The first American to win the Boston Marathon since 1983. What personal pride, and overwhelming unconditional love I felt not only for my current city of Boston, but for all who overcame whatever indifference, struggle, either physical/emotional/or mental to persevere and just show up today. Believe it or not - that is the part that most people don't have the balls or courage to ever do. I was honored to be in the company of some of my great friends who traveled from far, as well as met some new ones who put their all into this race. More than just a race for many; I could never do it justice with words. Never underestimate the power of proving yourself and those around you wrong. If you feel something strong enough and have to go it alone - DO IT. Boston, tonight, believe it or not I love you even more, and I will be thinking of you as I fall asleep. Thank you for a great day and great memory.
This is the most perfect picture of today. Meb (@runmeb) is our king of the road. Last year, on the day of the marathon, our hearts were broken. We launched at the Boston Marathon, we launched in Boston in 2010 behind Meb Keflezighi. He has been with us from the beginning. What happened last year not only affected the entire running community, but the world. We started a #UCAN BOSTON STRONG campaign last year to encourage people to get to the finish line for those that couldn't at Boston. To run for Boston. To run sole to soul. Today, our very first #UCAN athlete, crossed the finish in first. He won for Boston. He won for a nation. He won for runners everywhere. Thank you Meb for being Mebnificent, and continuing to inspire us daily. You have proven that things definitely get better with age and that age is limitless. #UCAN BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF YOUR DREAMS #UCAN RUN TO WIN #UCAN BOSTON STRONG #inMebwetrust#teamUCAN#mebstrong#bostonstrong#fuelofchampions@Bostonmarathon
