For the first time in nearly three decades, an American man was the first to cross the finish line at this year's Boston Marathon. Meb Keflezighi felt inspired by his win, in what was the first running of the race since a bombing last year near the finish left three people killed. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BOSTON MARATHON WINNER, AMERICAN MEBRAHTOM KEFLEZIGHI, SAYING: "I just kept thinking, Boston strong, Boston strong, Meb strong, Meb strong. Just give it everything you have and if I get beat, that's it. But at the same time I wanted to finish strong."
