Mark Winitz invites you to read his profile story, Mammoth Mission, about yesterday's Boston Marathon men's champion Meb Keflezighi. The story originally appeared in the June, 2003 issue of Running Times magazine. It provides background and insights about the fortitude and environment that eventually led to the athlete's ascendence to the top of Boston's podium -- where he became the first American man since 1983 to win the venerable race.
