Here's some footage of the 45-year-old Bruschi running the rain-soaked course. He completed the race in 4:35:35.

The former Patriots linebacker ran the marathon all three times as part of Tedy's Team, which is raising money for heart disease and stroke research. Bruschi suffered a stroke in February of 2005, but was able to recover and re-joined the Patriots during the 2005 campaign. He retired after the 2008 season, ending a 13-year career.

Monday's marathon was Bruschi's final time running the race.
