The London Marathon - The World's Most Competitive - Is Sunday

Note: We will have our London preview(s) out late Friday in US/early Saturday UK. In terms of Boston, we didn't find it appropriate to cover the race last week due to the tragic attacks. We plan on covering it one week after the fact. The runners will get the attention they deserve here on Tuesday.

LRC Top 25 Boston Results: Rita Jeptoo And Lelisa Desisa Win The action was exciting as Portugal's Anna Dulce Felix was reeled in after having a 1+ minute lead at 35k. The men's race ended up being a 3-way sprint for home between Gebre Gebremariam, debutante Micah Kogo, and Desisa. Shalane Flanagan and Jason Hartmann led the American charge with 4th-place finishes. The American men, thanks to Daniel Tapia and Craig Leon, place 3 in the top 10!
