High Winds Slow Down runners at Miami Marathon

More than 20,000 runners from over 80 countries hit the streets of South Florida Sunday for the Fitbit Miami Marathon. Runners faced high winds - gusts of up to 15 mph - along the route, slowing down the times of many runners. Kenyan runner Hillary Too, 38, was the first man (2:23:03). “I was aiming at 2:15 this time. But the wind was so tough," Too said. "This is why I could not run 2:15. But I'd like to come next year.” Lyubov Denisova, 46, of Gainesville was first woman (2:40:54).
