How great it must feel to be the first American woman to win the New York City Marathon since 1977.
Congratulations Shalane Flanagan. You did it! Even after recovering from a hip surgery at the beginning of 2017.
Shalane’s time was 2 hours, 26 minutes, 53 seconds, which was more than a minute ahead of Keitany, who is the woman who has won the last three NYC Marathons.
Shalane stretched herself as much as she could, went for it with all she had, and achieved the improbable.
We salute you as MISOGI Athlete of 2017!
