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.

"Runner gave out near 26 mile mark, right by the site where 1st bomb went off. 1 guy stopped to help, then another," Lowery tweeted.

Other runners were also helped to the finish line Monday, including a woman from Ohio.
