These Boston Marathon finish line photos are pure glory

Ever since Marcel Hug snapped the blue ribbon at approximately 11:45 a.m. Monday morning, photos of athletes completing the 26.2-mile Boston Marathon have been rolling in. And they. Are. Glorious.

Hug finished first in the men’s wheelchair division with an official time of 1:24:01. It was his second consecutive Boston Marathon win.

Twenty years ago, when Uta Pippig completed the Boston Marathon in 1996, she became the first woman to win three consecutive Bostons. This year, she completed the Marathon with just as much pride.
