LOOK: Boston marathoner falls near mile 26, four others carry him to end

By Mike Singer | CBSSports.com

Running a marathon, especially one as sentimental as this year's Boston Marathon, isn't so much about winning the race as it is about finishing it.

Which brings us to the most memorable image/story of this year's race, as witnessed by Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery.

Lowery reported that the crowd at the finish line erupted as all five finished the race.

American Meb Keflezighi won the race, but let's let these images serve in contrast to the devastating scenes from last year's race that left four people killed and hundreds more injured.
