More coming from the post-race press conference but she told Universal Sports she had a setback in January and that kept her off the roads and she felt the pounding of the roads.
She said her thoughts on the starting line were, "You can't take for granted being on the starting line. I had a setback in January so I didn't even know I was going to be here."
On the setback, "I could just tell, I didn't get on the course as much this year, and I kind of switched my training due to the setback and injury, I didn't get on the roads, as much. I could just tell the pounding, the typical Boston course, my legs felt it. I tried to talk my legs out of slowing down, but they didn't wnat to listen...I stayed positive and fought the entire way and said, ''never give up, never give up'"
