First-Time Boston Marathoners Emerge Victorious

Live: The latest news from the 2017 Boston Marathon

Keflezighi, whose emotional victory the year after the finish line bombings was the first for an American man in three decades, says he is running Boston for the last time.

Switzer used her influence to campaign to get women into the Boston Marathon by 1972.

"I was talking to her a long time", Hasay said.

She eventually triumphed by 59 seconds over Kenyan-born Bahraini Rose Chelimo. But using her left hand, a hand that now carries her late mother's engagement ring, the exchanges went off without a hitch. She'd registered under the name "K.V. Switzer" not with the intention of becoming a women's pioneer in the sport but to prove to her coach, Syracuse's Arnie Briggs, that women could run 26.2 miles. One hour in, the group was 10 runners wide with champions from the past three years out of the lead pack. "I kept running and completed my first Boston Marathon". "Running the marathon is nothing compared to what they're doing".

" 'You'll never have children, ' they said". You're going to grow hair on your chest.' It was hilarious, the myths. "I've got 70-year-old legs, and they deserve to look gnarly".

The Boston Marathon was officially opened to women runners in 1972. I was thinking about all of them and I know that they were with us all in spirit, and that my mom would be really proud. And the race director [Jock Semple] was on the truck and the guys were teasing him. She ran well in the Houston Half Marathon and the Prague Half Marathon, and has been getting much pre-race attention.

"I just felt blessed having her out there running every step with me". I was terrified. I was scared.

Earlier, 17-time Paralympic medalist Tatyana McFadden finished fourth in the wheelchair division, weeks after surgeries for blood clots. You know, we laugh about it now because it's so amusing when a girl is saved by her burly boyfriend. But ... She was 20 at the time and finished the race in four hours, 20 minutes, although she wasn't the fastest female competitor. "And I saw that he had not come with me, so I pushed a little bit more". Having won in NY and London, the 38-year-old was looking for her third Marathon Major gold medal.

"I'm at a point in my career where I feel like I can compete with anybody", he said this week.

"I was pretty anxious about grabbing the bottles", Hasay said, "because I had never done that before".
