Grandmas Marathon

A sea of runners took off at the start of Grandma's Marathon Saturday morning in Two Harbors, Minn. There were 9,747 runners scheduled to run the 26.2-mile race.

Wesly Ngetich is just the fourth man -- and the first non-American male -- to win Grandma's Marathon twice.

DULUTH -- It was the gamble Saturday that would either turn Wesly Ngetich into a Grandma's Marathon legend or into an also-ran for the second consecutive year.

With the bright sun beating down on his head and the burden of last year's Grandma's collapse weighted on his shoulders, Ngetich broke away from a pack of fellow Kenyans at the 17-mile mark and won his second Grandma's Marathon in three years.
