One year after the tragedy of the 2013 Boston Marathon, 36,000 runners showed they were Boston strong at the 2014 event. Eritrean-American Meb Keflizighi became the first American to win the BM since 1983, much to the delight of those in attendance.
Here's a look at 15 pictures from Getty that tell the story of this memorable event in typical Boston Strong fashion:
