Kenya’s Mutai wins Boston Marathon in record time  BOSTON — Kenya’s Geoffrey Mutai won the Boston Marathon in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 2 seconds – the fastest anyone has ever run the 26.2 mile distance.  The previous best of 2:03:59 was by Haile Gebrselassie in Berlin 2008. Because Monday’s race had a strong tailwind on a downhill course, Mutai’s run is not recognized by track’s international governing body as a record.  But Mutai was almost three minutes better than the course record set just last year by Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot. (Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)
