How to watch the Boston Marathon

Marblehead native Shalane Flanagan chose to put off retirement after winning the 2017 New York City Marathon so that she could try to win her homeown race.

Linden took the lead from Kenyan Gladys Chesir at the 35K mark and cruised to victory in the 122nd running of famed race from Hopkinton to Boston. It's also the first marathon win of the 34-year-old's career. Kirui slowed and stumbled across the Copley Square finish line 2:25 later, followed by Shadrack Biwott and three other US men.

Swiss Marcel Hug won his fourth consecutive wheelchair division, clocking 1:46:26 to beat South African Ernst Van Dyk (1:47:14).

The Boston Marathon past year was sunny with a high temperature of 75 degrees. Flanagan dropped out of the lead pack to go to a portable toilet.

"Honestly, at mile 2, 3, 4, I didn't feel like I was even going to make it to the finish line", Linden said.
