Israeli runner Lonah Chemtai Salpeter finishes the Boston Marathon in third place, with an unofficial time of 2:21:55, some 17 seconds behind winner Hellen Obiri of Kenya.

Salpeter stayed in the lead pack of racers for the entire 42.2-kilometer route, but fell behind in the final two miles as Obiri and Amane Beriso of Ethiopia battled for the top spot.

Salpeter’s time is an improvement over her second-place finish in the NYC Marathon in November at 2:23:30.
