LONDON — For the first time, more than 40,000 runners completed the Virgin Money London Marathon after record numbers left the Start Line Saturday morning, making the 38th edition of the race the biggest in its history.
By the end 40,255 had conquered the hottest Race Day on record to cross the Finish Line in The Mall and pick up their hard-earned medals and souvenir finishers' T-shirts, beating last year's record total by 768 runners.
Some 41,003 set off on the 26.2-mile journey from Blackheath to Westminster at 10:00 a.m., sent on their way by Her Majesty The Queen, who pushed the event's famous red button on her gleaming green lawn in front of Windsor Castle as a hooter sounded over the heads of the men's elite field on the far side of London.

Pete-302x397-thumb-500x657-34344.jpgOne of the real stories of the 2018 Boston Marathon will be how Americans did so well when athletes from Ethiopia and Kenya collapsed in the brutal conditions. The successes, a some noted, were among American's club system, clubs such as Hansons Brooks Distance Project, HOKA's Northern Arizona Elite, and the focus of this story, Reeboks' ZAP Fitness. What is most fascinating is that these clubs were all the products of someone, or someones with a dream, and a running brand that got the vision thing.

Kawauchi_YukiA-Boston18-thumb-500xauto-34233.jpgOn a day fit for neither man nor beast, Japan's Yuki Kawauchi was able to turn back the challenges of several fellow competitors and to endure the cruelest of Mother Nature's meteorological conditions to win the wind-swept and rain-soaked 2018 Boston Marathon.

When the elite men's start commenced amidst driving rain, a formidable headwind, and sub-freezing wind-chill temperatures, marathon aficionados scoffed when lightly-touted Kawauchi bolted to the front from the start and forged a sizeable early lead as he free-wheeled out of Hopkinton on the downhill to Ashland.

Linden_DesiFH-BostonMar18-thumb-500xauto-34254.jpgNo one deserved to be the first American woman to win Boston since another Michigander Lisa Larsen Weidenbach in 1985 than Desiree Linden. She has placed well here in each of her races including her second place finish by two seconds in 2011. Desi's first trip here in 2007 had conditions nearly as bad as today. But today's weather of near freezing temperatures, strong headwinds and periods of torrential rain and even hail led every athlete on the course to the ultimate test.
