Monday, April 21, 2014

Marblehead native Shalane Flanagan desperately wanted to win the 2014 Boston Marathon. For the first 17 miles she was in position to do so, but despite running a personal best Monday, it wasn’t enough to win. Flanagan dropped to the back of the leader pack in the Newton hills and ending up finishing in seventh place with a time of 2:22:02. She was the top American woman finisher. (CBS Boston)
