Well Femm Readers, AN AMERICAN HAS WON THE BOSTON MARATHON FOR THE FIRS TIME IN 33 YEARS. Desiree Linden took the women's race with a time of just 2 hours, 39 minutes and 53 seconds.
The weather was far from ideal as it was very rainy and gloomy, but runners were able to overcome it. In the men's division - Kawauchi, from Japan, took home the mens title with a time of 2:15:53.
Linden almost accomplished a win in 2011, when she was just 2 seconds away from winning. The last American to win the Boston Marathon was Lisa Larden Weidenbach in 1985.
It was a nasty day for a race but the runners all coped differently and these two were able to come out on top. And thank goodness for Desiree Linden for ending the drought of American winners for the Boston Marathon.
Congratulations to all of those who finished.
