"We've seen since Meb's win (in the New York City Marathon) that American athletes are standing taller. It was one thing to be tapping on the ceiling. Once one person crashes through, it makes all the difference."
That from Mary Wittenberg director of the New York race on the effect of Meb Keflezighi's (San Diego High alum) victory with respect to U.S. chances in the Boston Marathon which will be run tomorrow on Patriot's Day.
No U.S. male has won the Boston Marathon since 1983.
