Early Sunday morning, Tsegaye Kebede of Ethiopia won the London Marathon for the second time in his career with a time of 2:06.04. However, in terms of the international running and marathon community, that almost seems secondary.
Before the race, the participants held a moment of silence for all of those affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy. The moment began with the shrill cry of a whistle, but for 30 seconds, the mass of people gathered showed their respects, ending it with a rousing cheer.
Check out the nice moment in the video below.
