    hi i believe the marathon is a global event but seemed biased to the kenyan winners to mask their national anthem and trophy presentations where ur news casters kept saying american runners etc etc get over it kenyans have won over a decade and give them the respect they deserve

  2. Christina O'Connell says:

    Congrats to Tricia O’Connell for completing the Boston Marathon for Dana Farber and my daughter Riley who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer this past summer and has been cancer free for 8 months. She did it just at 5 hours and raised $12,000+ for the cause of research for a cancer free world. We love you and are very proud of you……

    Where was the assistance that the women’s winner needed at the finish? No one to put a blanket over her or give aid. Just two old guys who picked her up by the arms after what seemed like too long on the pavement!
