When the 122ND running of the Boston Marathon ends in Copley Square in Boston, Clark will be looking to the future.

For the next three years, the Boston Marathon ran without her.

Jordan Hasay watched Flanagan win in NY last fall, and had much the same idea. "It's a big commitment, so I really want to go back and see what I can do this year and hopefully, aim for a 2:55 would be pretty nice".

When the 122nd running of the Boston Marathon happens Monday morning, a Fort Mill family will be there again - together in Boston for the first time since the bombings in 2013. “All the Americans are an inspiration.”. Meb Keflezighis cathartic victory in 2014, one year after the bombings that killed three spectators and wounded hundreds more, ended a mens drought that had stretched to 1983.

"Galen will definitely be much harder to beat than previous year, regardless of how the race plays out", Alberto Salazar, his coach and a former Boston champion, told reporters.

But the locals are catching up. The professional women's race starts at 9:32 AM ET, with the professional men (and first wave) starting at 10:00 AM ET. Hasay was third and Desi Linden was fourth, her fourth top 10 finish in the race in as many tries; Flanagan was injured and did not run, but shes back in the field this year for what she says will be her final attempt to win her hometown race. "I was about ten paces from the finish line when the first blast went off to my left".

"Not knowing how hard the next section was was a benefit for us", she said. “Thats not good enough anymore.

Jurek - who holds numerous records for ultra-endurance feats, like the American men's record for most miles run in 24 hours (165.7 miles) and most consecutive wins at the 100-mile Western States race, to name a few - knew that he needed a monster goal to jumpstart his mindset. Galen Rupp, Desiree Linden, Jordan Hasay, and Abdi Abdirahman are also Americans who might pull out the win for the U.S. in the women's race. But its the women who give the Boston crowd the best chance to hear “The Star-Spangled Banner” wafting over Boylston Street.

"I'm ready as I can be", stated Hansons-Brooks runner Shadrack Biwott when asked if he felt prepared for Monday's race.

Jurek credits getting through the most painful parts of his "adventure" to watching his wife overcome her near-death experience after a miscarriage the year before. “Thats something Ive had to work on, knowing thats part of my psychology that I tend to just want this race so badly, I nearly have to pretend that I dont want to win it in order to do well.

"There was definitely pressure to go back", Clark said. "It wasn't that I had to prove something, I wanted to find the passion that I felt like I lost", he said.

“This is home, and these are the people that I want to make the most proud, ” she said. "What she does now - she started running clubs all around the world to inspire and empower women in all situations".

And when everything seemed to fall apart on race day - she dropped a water bottle, her legs were tired and she found herself fighting through each step for several miles - she relied on simple mental tricks to keep up her pace. “And thats a great thing.”.
