A stress fracture was found in her foot/heel the day before Boston, causing her to drop out.


Even a fracture doesn't take 8 weeks to heal.

A stress reaction can be overcome in just a few days, with proper use of ice water soaking.


That is what I thought initially... usually stress reactions are given like two weeks to heal.

Also, in elite marathon runners, I guarantee if you did an MRI on all of them before a particular race, over half of them would have an MRI that showed a stress reaction. Bone is constantly being degraded and being remodeled. It must have been hurting her significantly because otherwise it would make no sense to drop out.
