American Desiree Linden overcomes wet, windy conditions to win Boston Marathon

Before the race, Diana Dearden, a 26-year-old runner from Wilmington, Delaware, said she was feeling challenged by the rain and was anxious the cold will lead to problems. Rupp went on to win the 2017 Chicago Marathon in October.

The 122nd Boston Marathon is being held Monday. "I ran my own race and I ran him down". "It's storybook. So, I'm thrilled to be here and get it done". Linden finished fourth in the Marathon past year and finished second back in 2011.

American Sarah Sellers was second in 2:44.04.

The University of IL graduate won Monday morning's women's push rim wheelchair race, coming in first with a time of 2 hour, 4 minutes, 39 seconds.

In 2011, Linden finished second in the women's division, just 2 seconds behind Caroline Kilel.

Hometown favourite Shalane Flanagan, a four-time Olympian and the reigning New York City Marathon champion, finished sixth after popping into a course-side portable toilet before the halfway point and falling behind the lead pack.

Boyarko said she is feeling good and up for the race but the weather could be challenging.

Linden took the lead around the 2-hour, 12-minute mark, passing Gladys Chesir of Kenya and Mamitu Daska of Ethiopia.

Desiree Linden overcame daunting conditions Monday morning to become the first American to win women's race at the Boston Marathon since 1985. The last American man to win Boston was Meb Keflezighi, in 2014.
