Flanagan_Shalane-Boston15-thumb-500x750-11592.jpgFor Americans Shalane Flanagan, Amy Cragg and Adriana Nelson, today's Boston Marathon proved a race they will be keen to forget, each of their races unravelling in their own separate ways long before they reached the finish on Boylston street.

Flanagan, who had been touted as one of the leading contenders for the women's title, ran well below her best when finishing ninth in 2:27:47, almost three minutes behind champion Caroline Rotich of Kenya, and afterwards blamed an injury-hit preparation for her sub-par performance.

Molly Huddle defended her B.A.A. 5K title on April 18 in grand fashion, breaking the tape and the American record in 14:50, slashing four seconds off the mark set by Deena Kastor in 2002.
 
In the back of her mind, Huddle had the vague notion that she might chase the 5K American record at some point. Maybe later this year. Certainly not today.
