Congrats to everyone who completed today's B.A.A. Boston Marathon under cool and rainy conditions. Your winners were Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia on the men's side, running away with a time of 2:09:17, and Kenya's Caroline Rotich, who pulled away from Mare Dibaba near the finish to cross the finish line at 2:24:55.

Desisa's win was his second in three years. He won in the bombing-scarred Boston Marathon of 2013, and showed his classiness by donating his winning medal to the city of Boston as a sign of solidarity.

The top American finishers were Des Linden, who finished fourth overall in the women's race, and Dathan Ritzenhein, who came in seventh in the men's event. This was a great finish for Ritzenhein, who led the race for a while at one point. It was also a good finish for another male American, as last year's overall winner Meb Keflezighi came in behind Ritz in eighth place, despite having to stop to vomit five times.

And in another unforgettable, classy Meb moment, he found himself running next to American Hilary Dionne near the finish, and took her hand and raised it with his as they crossed the finish. (Dionne was the fourth American woman, and 15th woman overall.)

You'll find these and all results at the official Boston Marathon results list. Several ways to view the results:
