LA Marathon 2012 Results: Men and Women's Top Finishers
Even though rain and some cooler temperatures were in the forecast, mother nature was kind to the runners and unveiled some sunny skies in Sunday's 2012 Los Angeles Marathon.
According to Weather.com, the temperatures for Sunday's race are expected to be in the 50s, while there is more than a 50 percent chance for rain throughout the afternoon.
It will be interesting to see what kind of effect the unfavorable conditions will have on the top runners, and how it will chance their approach throughout the competition.

UPDATE: Sunday, March 18 at 2:17 p.m. ET
Kenyan Simon Njoroge won the men's race with a time of 2:12:12, while Ethiopian Fatuma Sado won the women's race with a time of 2:25:39.
Njoroge has raced in 17 marathons and has now won seven of them. That's quite impressive because winning marathons is one of the toughest things to do in sports.
Sado had a phenomenal race and was on track to break a course record but was unable to keep up that momentum toward the end.
According to the Los Angeles Times, both winners will receive $25,000 in prize money and a Honda CRV.
