The Dude Who Won The 2013 Boston Marathon Was Racing In Just His Second Marathon Ever

HAHAHAHAHA GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE

Hailing from Ethiopia, Lelisa Desisa won today’s Boston Marathon in 2 hours, 10 minutes, and 23 seconds. That is very fast, although not as fast as the Boston-record 2:03:02 that Geoffrey Mutai ran in 2011.

What’s most remarkable about this, though, is that the 2013 Boston Marathon was the 23-year-old Desisa’s SECOND MARATHON RACE EVER.

HIS SECOND. (In January, he won his debut, the Dubai Marathon, pictured here, in 2:04:45.)

Meanwhile, the top American was once again Jason Hartmann, who finished fourth. Here he is in 2012, when he also finished fourth.

And 32-year-old Rita Jeptoo won the women’s marathon in 2:26:25. She also won Boston in 2006, as seen below, and has been running marathons since 2004 — or nine years longer than Desisa.

As for Lelisa Desisa: I look forward to him winning the NFL MVP, Cy Young, and Tour de France in 2014.
