Meb Keflezighi aiming for 2016 Olympics after Boston repeat

Meb gets key to the city from mayor.

Meb Keflezighi turned 39 this week, and Saturday he was honored at his alma mater, San Diego High School, where he walked two laps with his family and dozens of fans and friends. The mayor gave him the key to the city and declared him “America’s Finest Runner” for winning at Boston. A councilman who once attended junior high and high school with Meb said the San Diego City Council named May in his honor — and if he wins the Rio Olympic marathon in 2016, they’ll have to name the year for him. (Meb told everyone he’s aiming for a Boston repeat in 2015 and a fourth Olympics in 2016.) I chatted with Meb during his walk, and this video covers the highlights of the day. My wife, Chris, posted a photo gallery for Times of San Diego and was featured several times in local CBS coverage of the event. (Look for the lady in red shirt and white cap.)
