Last year, the Boston Marathon turned into a nightmare when two brothers exploded bombs alongside the race course killing three and injuring more than 200. This year, the event drew a huge crowd and proved not only safe but amazing. Especially for Meb Keflezighi of Mammoth Lakes. He won the men’s division in 2:08:37.

Reports said the 39-year-old Keflezighi was the first American to win the Boston Marathon since 1985. Meb has long trained in the high altitude of Mammoth Lakes. Check this out –
