The 115th Boston Marathon was last Monday, Tax Day 2011. Aided by a nice tailwind in nice conditions, 2 incredible Kenyans run under 4:42 per mile pace over the 26.2 miles to finish in the fastest 2 marathon times ever recorded (at least by a human).
While the Kenyans stole the spotlight, there are some very worthy Ventura County-ans who did quite well in this year's Boston Marathon! Here they are and congratulations goes out to them!
