Statement from Molly Seidel after withdrawing from the 126th Boston Marathon at mile 16.6:

“I’ve been dealing with a hip impingement on and off through the build. It was feeling good the last few weeks and no indication that it would hurt today. I went out aggressively in the race but wasn’t able to hang with the leaders but tried to give it my best shot even though the hip started to lock up around halfway. By mile 16 I was in an good deal of pain and had I had to make the difficult call to stop at a medical tent to avoid really damaging anything.”
