Turns out the weather in Boston wasn't too, too bad. It still slowed the elites quite a bit, with Robert Cheruiyot winning again, about seven minutes slower than last year. Deena Kastor came up short because of stomach problems halfway through, which pretty much sucks. The Chasing Kimbia guys finished third, fourth and sixth. Cheruiyot had an interesting thing to say when he was asked if he was aware of his time: “When the lion is chasing the antelope, he doesn’t look back. He has to eat.” I'd like to figure out the right context I can bust that out.
