At the beginning of her Boston Marathon race, Desiree Linden was not sure if she had enough to make it to the finish line. Perhaps Linden's experience with inclement weather in MI helped give her a leg up with the rain, wind and cold in Boston Monday. The 34-year-old defeated a challenging field and extremely hard weather to record her first major win. That was more than four minutes better than second-place finisher Sarah Sellers, one of seven Americans in the top 10, but the slowest time for a women's victor since 1978.

Linden's run was a memorable one not only for her triumph over the conditions, but also for her sportsmanship displayed on the course.

Linden made her country and her alma mater proud.

As for herself, Flanagan was reportedly unsure she would even finish the Boston Marathon. By the end, she was all alone in first place as the crowded Boston streets cheered Linden to the first women's race victory for a United States runner since 1985.

Desiree Linden fought through the elements to become the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon in 33 years.

"I don't have the right words", Linden told reporters.
