Maryland Native Wins Women's Wheelchair Race At Boston Marathon

Maryland Native Wins Women's Wheelchair Race At Boston Marathon

Her workload steadily increased, and as Linden explained to Runner's World, by October she was running daily and logging at least 90 miles per week. But even retired Ogden track coach Don Hall, who watched the race on television Monday, was surprised to see his former star runner finish second in Boston. The U.S. elite runner finished the marathon in 2:46:31, the Washington Post reports.

Desiree Linden of the U.S. crosses the finish line to win the women's division of the 122nd Boston Marathon in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S., April 16, 2018. Despite holding the lead for most of the second half of the race, Kirui, who is the New York Marathon champ, was struggling to keep up his pace in the last 5 miles. But on Monday, Mother Nature did not care for anyone's credentials.

"(I thought) Well I should probably help Molly reconnect to (the leaders).

Unfortunately, things didn't pan out the way she had hoped, as Flanagan managed to only come in sixth in the women's race.

Per Nicole Yang of this Boston Globe, Flanagan ceased more than a hour in to the race. "Everything was ideal on a really rotten day", she said.

She also won this year's women's wheelchair race at the Chicago Marathon. "I think I'm in a good spot, maybe not exactly where I was a year ago but certainly not a step behind", shared Linden. "I found that spot and pressed from there".

Instead, she kept gaining on Ethiopia's Mamitu Daska, finally pulling into first place at the 22-mile mark. The six-time Boston runner broke the tape at 2:39:54 to be named the 2018 champion. She never turned back. I told her [Flanagan] I said let me understand since I might lose out, when there's anything I can do to assist you.

Linden was running alongside 2017 New York City Marathon victor Shalane Flanagan, the pair helping pace one another.

Gas prices hit 3-year high
Crude prices rose more than $5 last week, the largest weekly increase in more than eight months, according to auto club AAA. If you go to the gas pump in Baton Rouge today you should notice a slight increase in what you are paying for gas.

The last time a Japanese runner finished on top of the podium at the Boston Marathon was the same year Kawauchi was born.

Flanagan, who surprised many when she captured New York City in November, finished in seventh place, almost 20 minutes slower than her New York-winning time.

"I knew I could get back to the pack if it was slow enough, so that was a calculated risk I took", Flanagan said.

"It was tough because running is her job and you wanted to be happy in those times", her husband Ryan Linden says. For NPR News, I'm Shannon Dooling in Boston.

Several of this year's participants in the annual Boston Marathon had ties to Livingston County.

Linden, 34, of Chula Vista, California, finished seventh at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and did not finish in London in 2012.

"It was pretty incredible", Hyland said. "Any success she's had is success that she did a better job of envisioning before I did".
