Undaunted, Runners and Spectators Gather for the 2014 Boston Marathon

For more photos and videos from the 2014 Boston Marathon, browse the #bostonmarathon and #bostonstrong hashtags, explore the Boston Marathon Finish Line location page and follow @bostonmarathon on Instagram.

More than 35,000 runners and nearly half a million spectators turned out for the 118th annual Boston Marathon today. Despite last year’s bombings at the finish line, top athletes from 91 countries convened in Boston again this year. Family, friends and well-wishers—undeterred by last year’s tragedy—lined the 26.2 mile route from Hopkinton to Boston to cheer and document the event.

Rita Jeptoo of Kenya, with a time of 2:18:57, took first in the women’s category. With a time of 2:08:37, Meb Keflezighi took first place among men, the first American to do so since 1983.

Penguin watching made with data. Before data became a household name, zoos depended on good weather and maybe the birth of a cute, baby elephant to draw crowds. Now they’re able to keep visitors coming with social media and analytics. Like The Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington. It feeds the public’s interest in the zoo with data by taking what they learn from comments on social media and offering special deals and membership events on the fly. Explore more stories →

The truth is you organically have your own style that’s going to come out—even when you copy other people, especially in the beginning. And the end result is that you get this amazing amalgam of all the people that you respect, and it comes out in amazing ways. To think otherwise—to think that you’re somehow pure and your voice is independent of all the others is probably a little grandiose.
