Congrats to Jiptoo and Desisa! And I was quite proud of Goucher, Flanagan, and Hartmann!
I wonder if we could just rely entirely on an interpreter for the post-race interviews, when the winners aren't comfortable with English? Not because I mind, or because of some kind of stupid idea that only English should be spoken by the participants, I just feel sorry for the poor winners. I know when I've just finished a marathon, I can barely speak my own native language legibly...I can't imagine understanding and then answering questions about race strategy in a foreign tongue in that state.

American women went 4,6, 15. Men went 4, 9, 10. Some folks might have heard about #15 gal, Stephanie Rothstein (now Bruce), but I bet not many know who the 9th and 10th guys were.
RA's BadDawg: 12th in AG -- 2:47:52.
I think I'd read about Tapia not long ago in a magazine. Good for him to peak at this level.
an amazing likeness
Dude is a great guy first, and what an impressive runner...
I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)

There's been an explosion near the finish line and runners are not being allowed to finish bc emergency crews are in.

Three half marathons later, I got a number. Half Fanatic #9292. :)
Doc, my tooth hurts
Oh no. I've seen the early photos and can't believe such a thing could happen.
DW and I had just left the area and heard the blasts. Sonofabitch.

Last I saw that shot, it was full of crowds and hubbub. Now, no crowds, different kind of hubbub.

Holy fuck. I hope none of our people are out there.
