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.

The win marked redemption for Linden, who performed in the elite field at Boston throughout her career and lost the 2011 Boston Marathon title by just two seconds. Canadian athlete Krista Duchene finished third, at 2:44:20.

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

Yuki Kawauchi passed defending champion Geoffrey Kirui in Kenmore Square to win the men's race in an unofficial 2:15:58 and earn Japan's first Boston Marathon title since 1987.

The rest of the Top 10 was dominated by American women, as Rachel Hyland (2:44:29) ranked fourth, Nicole Demercurio (2:45:52) finished fifth in the women's race, Kimi Reed (2:46:47) came in seventh, and Joanna Thompson (2:48:31) was the 10th to cross the 2018 Boston Marathon finish line.
