American Linden, Japan's Kawauchi win Boston Marathon

Linden becomes first US female to win Boston Marathon since 1985; Japanese amateur wins men's race

"It was definitely toughest conditions, on the cold side, that I've run in", she added.

Linden won despite waiting for her running partner, Shalane Flanagan, when Flanagan had to take a detour for a bathroom break.

Unfortunately, things didn't pan out the way she had hoped, as Flanagan managed to only come in sixth in the women's race.

Despite her early-race doubts - and even slowing down to wait for a fellow American runner that stopped to use the restroom - Linden was able to find her groove and clinch her first major marathon championship.

In 2011, Linden finished second in the women's division, just 2 seconds behind Caroline Kilel. It's also the first marathon win of the 34-year-old's career.

On a 38-degree, rainy, windy and all-around pretty gross day in Boston on Monday, Desiree Linden became the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon in over 30 years. Linden, a California native who lives in MI, almost ended the drought in 2011 when she was outkicked down Boylston Street and finished second by 2 seconds during yet another Kenyan sweep.

In the 2011 Boston Marathon, Linden came in second, just two seconds behind victor Caroline Kilel.

"I love this city", Linden said to NBC Sports. Flanagan dropped out of the lead pack to go to a portable toilet. The last time the United States boasted such an impressive feat was in 1985 when Lisa Larsen Weidenbach was the victor of the Boston race.

"It's storybook", the victor of the 2018 Boston Marathon added. Kirui slowed and stumbled across the Copley Square finish line 2:25 later, followed by Shadrack Biwott and three other US men.

According to ESPN, Linden's time was the slowest time for a women's victor since 1978. but a win is a win. Canadian athlete Krista Duchene finished third, at 2:44:20. The last American man to win Boston was Meb Keflezighi, in 2014.
