Momentous Meb! Great coverage of 38-year-old runner at Boston

Meb Keflezighi isn’t just a great runner. He’s a great guy. I know him from many San Diego events. But winning the Boston Marathon only weeks shy of turning 39 is beyond amazing. I couldn’t be happier for him. (And maybe now he’ll stop this fling with road running and return to the track!) It also was noted: “The 38-year old Olympic silver medalist is also the oldest man to win the event since 1930, when 40-year old Clarence deMar took first place.” In any case, here’s my roundup of reaction on Times of San Diego. I also did a Storify of the Twitter eruption after he became the first American since 1985 to win Boston.
