In Olathe, Meb Keflezighi shares story of his emotional Boston Marathon win

Meb Keflezighi vacated his spot near the 2013 Boston Marathon finish line only a few minutes before two explosions killed three people. He was still close enough to hear the blasts, the sounds drawing his mind back to a childhood that more closely resembled a war zone than a marathon route. It was that moment, he said, that sparked his victory in the 2014 race Monday, when he became the first American since 1983 to win the Boston Marathon, finishing in 2 hours, 8 minutes and 37 seconds.
