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." It was a second consecutive win at the race for Kenya's Rita Jeptoo -- and the 'Boston Strong' theme to this year's race resonated with her too. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BOSTON MARATHON WOMEN'S WINNER, KENYAN RITA JEPTOO, SAYING: "I'm happy because I decided to come here to Boston to run again to show people support and to show people in Boston here, that we are together." For those who survived last year's bombing -- it was a moment of closure. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MARATHON RUNNER SCOTT WEISSBERG SAYING: "Coming back as a survivor from the bombings last year and being able to complete it again, is amazing." (SOUNDBITE) (English) MARATHON RUNNER DAN SEMSEL SAYING: "It felt absolutely incredible. When you look at the events of last year, the tragedy of last year, we earned this. We worked hard for this. And this was our year. It felt amazing." (SOUNDBITE) (English) MARATHON RUNNER ADRIENNE KEANE SAYING: "It was a very emotional day today. I was really fueled up so many times today thinking of last year and looking at this beautiful day and grateful that we could all be here. But sad to see policemen and sad for the way that we had to run the race today - but grateful that we get to run the race today." This year's race took place amid tight security and mandatory checkpoints. Perhaps a small price to pay for some 5,000 athletes who had to leave the course after pressure-cooker bombs went off near the finish last year.
