BOSTON (April 20, 2015) - Tight packs, cool temperatures and moderate early paces led to thrilling finishes Monday morning at the 119th running of the Boston Marathon.
Early on, both the men’s and women’s races held over a dozen competitors among their lead packs. While athletes took turns leading each, ultimately it was the front running heroics of Americans Des Linden and Dathan Ritzenhein which drove onlookers into a frenzy.
