2014 Chicago Marathon Women's Preview: Rita Jeptoo Attempts to Win Fourth Straight World Marathon Major

After a 2:18:57 CR in Boston in April, a win by Jeptoo would give her the best two-year run since Paula Radcliffe set two WRs and won three majors from 2002-2003., but it will be far from easy as marathon world record holder Florence Kiplagat and 2:19:52 woman Mare Dibaba will both try to beat Jeptoo to the finish line in Grant Park. The American contingent is led by Olympian Amy Hastings and Clara Santucci, who won the Pittsburgh Marathon in May, as Lisa Uhl looks to try to start the resurrection of her career.
