Boston Marathon

The Kenyans have once again swept the historic and annual Boston Marathon

Robert Cheruiyot set a course record in the Boston Marathon on Monday as he and women's winner Rita Jeptoo pulled off a Kenyan sweep

Last year's winners were Hailu Negussie of Ethiopia and Catherine Ndereba of Kenya

Kenyan men had won all 10 men's races between 1991 and 2000 and 13 of 14 before Negussie won last year. But Negussie fell behind early Monday and never challenged for the lead

The last American to win the Boston Marathon was 23 years ago. Do you think an American will ever win this race again?

Marathon Boston

Sure, someday, but not any time real soon. In fact, I work with a man who raced in the Marathon four years ago. He said it was humbling to get so many people from so many cultures together in one race. It must have been like the Olympics of the marathon world. He is training to run in next years marathon, its amazing the amount of work he puts his body through to run that long.

Boston Marathon

Blasts near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killed two people and injured at least 28 others Monday, Boston police said.

The marathon itself, on its Facebook page, referred to the blasts as bombs. Authorities did not say immediately what caused the explosions.

Massachusetts General Hospital said it was treating 19 injured people; Tufts Medical Center reported that some injured were to be treated there as well.

The explosions sent smoke billowing into the air at Copley Square, turning a site of celebration into a mess of destruction.

Out of an abundance of caution, the Lenox Hotel was evacuated, the Boston Globe reported, as authorities looked into possible security concerns.

Officials in other cities, including New York and Washington, D.C., tightened security as a result.

The explosions occurred at about 2:45 p.m., more than two hours after the first of the race' s nearly 27,000 runners had crossed the finish line.

The race was halted as was subway service into the area.

The F.B.I. And troops from the Massachusetts National Guard were assisting police. Ref. CNN

I'm reading reports of a third explosion? Got this just now from CNN:

Boston police are investigating whether a third explosion, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, is connected to Monday's two bombings at the Boston Marathon, Police Commissioner Ed Davis said.


I hope this is just isolated events and not some kind of mass attack. This is going to put a serious downer on the Boston Marathon.
