Kenyans Kirui, Kiplagat win Boston Marathon; good day for US
18 April 2017, 02:14 | Nichole Osborne
It was Evans's 19th Boston Marathon and his 52nd overall.
The Kenyan policewoman opened up a big lead heading into the Newton hills, and she cruised to victory in an unofficial 2 hours, 21 minutes, 53 seconds in Monday's 121st running of the race.
Kiplagat, a 38-year-old mother of two whose resume includes marathon wins in London, Moscow, New York and Daegu, ran alone for the final miles of the race and finished in 2:21:52, nearly a minute ahead of Bahrain's Rose Chelimo. He plans to run the New York Marathon, which he won in 2009, one last time in the fall before retiring.
Marcel Hug won Boston for the third time, outpushing 10-time champion Ernst Van Dyk down Boylston Street and finishing in 1:18:04 to beat the course record and world best by 21 seconds.
Rose Chelimo, the Kenyan-born runner who now represents Bahrain, was second in 2:22:51 while Jordan Hasay of the United States was third in 2:23:00.
Two-time Olympic Desiree Linden probably is the top US threat in the women's race.
Kenya's Geoffrey Kirui was the men's victor, pulling away from Rupp with about two miles to go to win in 2:09:37.
Rupp battled desperately to stay in touch but was unable to respond as Kirui kept the pace up to leave the Oregon-based American in second in 2:09:58.
After this year, the Boston Athletic Association has announced that bib 261 will be retired from the marathon. Evans, who completed his 52nd marathon overall, said he wanted to show that Boston is back to normal.
Schar, who won the marathon gold medal at the 2013 World Championships, finished with a time of 1:28:17, also setting a new world record. He'll create the memorial markers on Boylston Street where bombs killed three spectators and wounded more than 260 others.
Now, after running 39 marathons, 70-year-old Switzer will run in this year's Boston Marathon, likely with more people cheering her on than in 1967.
The elite women are on their way in the 121st running of the BostonMarathon.
Eduardo said Monday his goal is to "embody the spirit of those we lost and the spirit of the city they loved".
The warm temperatures that hit 79 degrees at the 20-kilometer mark in Natick slowed the runners, but the strong tailwind was a boost - especially in the wheelchair races.
Regardless of when Switzer crosses the finish line today, there's no denying she's already won in our eyes, a million times over.
Update 10:55 a.m.: Though some athletes have already completed the marathon's 26.2 miles, others haven't even started the race yet.

Burger King Ad Triggers Google Home Device
The internet barely had time to be annoyed for that new 15 second Burger King ad before Google shut the whole thing down. Interestingly, it looks like Burger King edited that entry to get it to include the Whopper's ingredient list.
