I think you caught the emotions of both the winners and the also ran.

Doesn't seem like it. The woman winner was Sidney Devore

Ethiopia's Fikadu Girma Teferi was on a mission to improve on last year's third-place finish in the men's marathon.

Mission accomplished.

Teferi, 24, a member of the West Side Runners training group in New York, broke the finish-line tape in a winning time of 2:13.46, bettering the mark of 2:16.51 he recorded in 2017.

A pair of Kenyans, Kipkoech Ruto (2:13.52) and Kimutai Cheruiyot (2:14.57), finished second and third, respectively.

Teferi said experiencing the Pittsburgh course last year helped him assemble a winning strategy.

Teferi's time bettered his ninth-place finish at the 2017 New York City Marathon (2:13.58).

Teferi said he hopes to come back and run in Pittsburgh in 2019. His time goal next time?

"I don't know, maybe 2:09," he said.

Teferi knows what it takes as he posted a 2:09.34 in Dusseldorf, Germany, in April 2014.

The Pittsburgh victory was his third at a U.S. marathon. He also won the Quad Cities Marathon in Moline, Ill., and the Columbus (Ohio) Marathon, both in 2016.

The Quad Cities Marathon was his first race in the U.S.
