Keflezighi_MebA-BostonM14-thumb-500x750-8594.jpgNot only did Meb Keflezighi deliver an American victory at the Boston Marathon, the first American male to do so in 31 years, but there was this victory, too:

On Nov. 1, 2009, during the 40th running of the New York City Marathon, Meb Keflezighi became the first American since Alberto Salazar in 1982 to win the largest marathon in the world.

Indeed, his family’s journey from immigrants from Eritrea to the USA to a family consisting of 10 college graduates has been called one of the best illustrations of the American Dream.
