I mean I was loving the last 5 miles, don't get me wrong. I just can't imagine what it would have been like to see some American I've never heard of before running into first in the last couple of miles and frantically using Google to try to learn her story.
Editor's note. This post first was posted on race day but we merged it into the thread on Sellers but decided it should stand alone as it's a fascinating one. Had Linden not run, someone virtually no one had heard of might be the Boston Marathon champion.
