First American woman to win Boston Marathon in 33 years

Desiree Linden won the 2018 Boston Marathon on Monday, finishing in two hours 39 minutes and 54 seconds to become the first American woman to win the race in 33 years. She said, “This is storybook stuff. I got out here in 2007 and debuted as a nobody. To win on this course and in this race with that support group that has always believed in runners and believed in me is just awesome.” She also told ESPN that it felt "so good" to win.
