Priscah Jeptoo & Geoffrey Mutai Win New York City Marathon
The 2013 New York City Marathon went off without a hitch on Nov. 2, as more than 48,000 runners trekked through NYC’s five boroughs. And in just over two hours and 25 minutes, Priscah Jeptoo, 29, from Kenya won for the women, while Geoffrey Mutai — also from Kenya — won for the men with a finishing time of 2:08:24.
While hordes of people cheered her on in Central Park, Priscah raised her arms triumphantly — and actually looked surprisingly composed, considering she just won one of the biggest marathons in the world. Her husband, who was waiting for her just past the finishing point, hugged her proudly.
Geoffrey, 32, meanwhile let his jubilation show, wrapping the Kenyan flag around him and high-fiving members of the crowd with a huge beaming smile on his face. Geoffrey also won the New York Marathon in 2011.
