Sarah Callister Sellers, former Weber State standout, takes second at Boston Marathon

She only signed up for Boston because her younger brother, 24-year-old Ryan Callister, was running it. (Ryan finished in 2:48:20.) Plus she's also a nurse anesthetist who works full-time in Tuscon, Arizona.

A Kenya native and American citizen, Biwott spent his high school and early college years in Albuquerque, N.M., before becoming an All-American at the University of OR in Eugene, aka TrackTown USA.

Linden wasn't always looking for a second wind; she wanted to maximize performance while she was exhausted.

I don't want to take anything away from Desiree Linden's spectacular and gutsy win in the women's race, but another race was happening at the same time that WBZ ignored nearly completely. You obviously don't know her.

"Everyone is looking for that 1 percent".

Gurriel, Toronto's fifth-best prospect, according to Baseball America , was recalled before the game and started at second base. He also had trouble blocking two pitches in the dirt by Gray that became wild pitches.

Spencer, smartly dressed in a windbreaker rain jacket to protect him from the cold and rain, held flags to cheer on runners in a video shared to Facebook by his owner.

"The poor weather certainly didn't help", she said.

She ran 22 minutes slower than her first Boston, yet placed top five.

"If you're a marathoner everyone always asks you, 'have you run Boston?' So in Sarah's case now she can say 'yes, oh and by the way, I was second", Pilkington said.

Better than the East Africans, who have dominated the race for the past three decades. They finished the race with stellar times. "Honestly, with Des, I hardly ever want ideal conditions".

The prize was founded in 2013 to commemorate Jewish achievements and contributions to humanity. Portman was announced as the victor of the 2018 Genesis Prize in November.

This year's men's race was won by Japan's Yuki Kawauchi, with a time of 2:15:58. She went home to get warm and dry, then restarted from the same spot with her husband and crossed the finished line just after midnight Tuesday. It's storybook stuff. This is a race the entire city cares about. But yesterday's race was epic, too.

"It's good to get it done", Linden said after the race according to AP writer Jimmy Golen. "No matter what the conditions".

Those numbers were all in line with what organizers have seen in other years, with normal weather.

The two-time Olympian and 2011 Boston runner-up pulled away at the end of Heartbreak Hill to finish in 2 hours, 39 minutes, 54 seconds. With a previous personal-best time of 2:53:30, Chichester was listed as an "amateur" and wasn't even seeded in the professional field's start corral.

"A ton of American pride on the line", Linden said.
