Inspiring photo from journalist Wesley Lowery as four runners helped carry a fallen patriot across the finish line at today’s 118th Boston Marathon.
It was a historic day in Boston as more than 32,000 runners returned to run one year after the marathon bombings killed three and injured hundreds.
The race was won by an American for the first time since 1983 as Meb Keflezighi finished first. Kenyan Rita Jeptoo was the women’s top finisher.
