Clarence DeMar And Catherine Ndereba Have Won The Most Boston Marathons On The Men’s And Women’s Side, Respectively

Tomorrow will mark the first Boston Marathon since last year’s bombing, which took the lives of three spectators and later an MIT police officer. Hundreds were injured, many severely and some with forever life-altering physical damage.

Let’s take a moment to remember those young people who lost their lives…

Krystle Marie Campbell, 29

Lu Lingzi, 23

Martin William Richard, 8

Sean A. Collier, 27

…and those who were injured.

Remember those affected by the tragedy in your prayers or in whatever manner befits you. Thank you.

I wanted to do a post today on the Boston Marathon as my way of remembering – and also to call attention to what is truly an historical and world-class event in a world-class city. B strong.

Below are the men and women who have won multiple Boston Marathons.
