Shot at the corner of Commonwealth Ave & Walnut St, about 1/2 way up Heartbreak Hill.
This is Catherine Ndereba of Kenya in the middle of "Heartbreak Hill" in Newton, about 7 miles from the finish of today's Boston Marathon. Her win today is her fourth victory in this race.
It was easy to tell that she was going to win this race.
The second place woman was an Ethiopian,Alemu Elfenesh who finished just a little under 2 minutes back. When she passed me she was about 1 minute back.
The top men were all together when they passed me.
The eventual winner was Hailu Negussie of Ethiopia, wearing bib number 7. To his left are Timothy Cherigat who finished sixth, down almost 3 minutes and Benson Cherono who finished third down about a minute.
