2010 Boston Marathon Winner and Times

Boston Marathon Winners!

I love a good race, and it sounds like the marathon in Boston today was an exciting one. With a winning time of 2:26:11, Teyba Erkesso of Ethiopia crossed the finish line first today at the 114th running of the Boston Marathon. The 27-year-old takes home a purse of $150,000. Second place was garnered by Tatyana Pushkareva, 24, of Russia, who crossed the line only three seconds behind the winner with a time of 2:26:14. Salina Kosgei, the Kenyan defending champion, came in third place with a time of 2:28:35. The prize for second place is $75,000, and the third place winner takes home $40,000. American Paige Higgins came in 13th place with a time of 2:36:00. Congrats to all the runners — elites and the rest of the pack.

Runningesq, you're so close to qualifying! Do you think you're going to start training for a marathon again soon after you have your baby, or are you going to wait a while? I, on the other hand, am still pretty far away from qualifiying for Boston. I'm in awe of people who do, though -- such an amazing accomplishment!!

My coworker ran his 5th Boston. He was just fast enough to get into the very first corral. We were tracking his result from the web. And he is official time was 3:03:30!! Not a PR for him, but beat his past record at Boston by 6 min. I don't know when I will be able to qualify, but I am very happy for him, and can't wait until his return to join us for next week's BSIM.
