2013 Boston Marathon: Searchable Results

Praying for Boston

In light of the unbelievable events that took place soon after the four-hour mark at Monday's Boston Marathon, it almost seems trivial to post results. But since thousands of people put countless hours preparing for the race (and raising money for charity), and the majority of them finished the race, here is the link to 2013 searchable Boston Marathon results.

The Boston Athletic Association placed a short message on its website (, which in part says that additional information will be provided on the organization's Facebook page, Their Twitter page,, will probably have updates tomorrow as well.

The front pages of tomorrow's papers should have featured photos and stories showing the winners:  Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia winning the men's race in 2:10:22, and Kenya's Rita Jeptoo capturing the women's division in 2:26:25. Instead, they will be showing images of a horrific crime scene.

It's very sad to see a senseless act take attention away from a great effort by the winners. And, by the way, a very good day for American distance running. Even with some big names having to skip Boston because of injury, the U.S. had some strong top-ten finishes: Jason Hartmann fourth, Daniel Tapia ninth, and Craig Leon tenth in the men's competition, and Shalane Flanagan fourth and Kara Goucher sixth in the women's race. (See the top men's and women's finishers here.)

Let's hope that all those injured make full recoveries ... and that the people behind this atrocious crime are caught and brought to justice.
