The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Geoffrey Mutai Sets Running World on Fire with 2:03:02 Boston Marathon Win (Male Results)

It was a perfect day for Kenaya Geoffrey Mutai at the running of the 115th Boston Marathon on Monday.  The weather was cool, there was a tailwind, and Mutai used both to his advantage in running the fastest Boston Marathon time ever in 2:03:02.

Fellow countryman Moses Mosop, in his marathon debut, was almost quite as successful, finishing just 4 seconds back in 2:03:06.  Ethiopian Gebre Gebremariam finished in third at 2:04:53.

American Ryan Hall ran the fastest marathon time ever by an American with a superb finishing time of 2:04:58.  A time that would have won last year’s Boston Marathon.
