Desiree Linden won the women’s division of the 2018 Boston Marathon on Monday with an unofficial time of 2:39:54, becoming the first American woman to win since 1985.

Fans were pumped to see an American take home the title, especially after Linden waited mid-race while fellow American Shalane Flanagan took a bathroom break.

Some may have even cried a little bit, if their tweets are to be believed.

Others were moved to tears not only by Linden’s win, but by her husband’s reaction to her victory.

Even Ellen DeGeneres was impressed.

Basically, everyone is pretty emotional right now.
