Meb Keflezighi Wins NYC Marathon!

Meb won the New York City Marathon this weekend.
Meb is an awesome runner. Meb is an American.

United States marathoning is back on track! We grabbed 6 of the top 10 spots in the men's field and 13 of the top 20 finishers were Americans. That's pretty good and a welcome change. On the women's side we had 4 in the top 10 and 11 of the top 20 finishers.

Please, no comments about how Meb isn't really an American. He is...and I'm proud to call him a fellow citizen. Enough said. Here is a good piece in Sports illustrated about Meb and his win over the weekend.
