Kenyans Win New York Marathon

(AURN/AP) -- The New York City Marathon returned after a one-year absence with big crowds, heightened security and a familiar champion.

2013 NY Marathon winnersGeoffrey Mutai successfully defended his title, while fellow Kenyan Priscah Jeptoo came from behind to win the women's race. 

The 2012 NYC Marathon was canceled because of the devastation of Superstorm Sandy, but not before many New Yorkers were enraged by initial plans to hold the race.

The race drew a record 50,740 people to start the race - including the millionth in the 33-year history of the marathon - that touches all five of the city's boroughs.
