Jordan Hasay finishes third in Boston Marathon - after a year of injuries

Runners approach the 24-mile marker at the 2018 Boston Marathon last April

Joan Benoit Samuelson is embraced Monday by Boston Athletic Association CEO Tom Grilk after she finished the 123rd Boston Marathon.

A grueling 26.2-mile Boston Marathon men's elite race came down to the final seconds and a sprint to the finish line, which Kenya's Lawrence Cherono won to edge Ethiopia's Lelisa Desisa Benti to capture the men's elite title.

Johnson is a seven-time NASCAR champion who took advantage of NASCAR's schedule this year - the race at Richmond was on Saturday - to fulfill his goal of running the Boston Marathon. The one-second margin of victory was the race's closest finish since 1988 with Cherono clocking an unofficial 2:07:59 and Desisa clocking a 2:08:00. He placed 20th in his age group and 238th overall.
