Boston Marathon Winners 2011

Congrats to Boston Marathon Winners!

The course of the Boston Marathon is full of ups and downs (literally and figuratively) — they don't call the long climb around the 20-mile mark "Heartbreak Hill" for nothing. Today's race was fast (read: record breaking fast) and with a few exciting upsets to boot. Crossing the finish first in the women's race was Caroline Kilel (age 30) of Kenya with a time of 2:22:36. Fast on her heels was the 27-year-old American runner Desiree Davila of Michigan, who crossed the line two seconds behind the winner. The third-place finisher Sharon Cherop, also of Kenya and also 27 years old, completed the course in 2:22:42. Competing in her first marathon since giving birth to her son, Colt, back in September, American Kara Goucher came in fifth place with a time of 2:24:52. Congrats to all the runners — elites and the rest of the pack.
