Keflezighi was at the Bix 7 Expo inside the River Center Friday. He is sponsored by Sketchers and signed dozens of autographs for fans Friday. Keflezighi is the first American to win the Boston Marathon in 31 years.

Keflezighi is also no stranger to the Quad Cities. He first won the Bix 7 race in 2002. He also won it in 2009. Keflezihi says he's been back seven times since then.

If you still want to sign up for Saturday's race, you have to sign up by 9 p.m. Friday at the River Center in Davenport. The race starts at 8 a.m. Saturday.
