Defending Boston Marathon champ Meb Keflezighi provided a heart-warming moment by crossing the finish line holding hands with a female runner.
While cruising into an eighth place finish among the men’s elite runners, Meb reached out and grabbed the hand of Hilary Dionne, an elite women’s runner from nearby Charlestown.
Not my best time, but by far my most memorable finish. Thanks amazing @runmeb for joining me across the line, an unforgettable moment!— Hilary Dionne (@hildionne) April 20, 2015
With last year’s win, Meb became the first American to win the Boston Marathon in over 30 years.
He may not have repeated, but hey, he’s still got a soft spot in our hearts. Happy Meb Crush Monday, Boston.
