NYC Marathon Winner: Olympic Medalist Shalane Flanagan Finishes Second

New York City Marathon Update: A 28 year old American woman, Shalane Flanagan, finished second in today's New York City Marathon. Shalane Flanagan almost won the NYC Marathon race; Flanagan, from Massachusetts, ran the race in 2:28:40. The winner, Edna Kiplagat of Kenya, ran the race in 2:28:20, just 20 seconds faster than Shalane's impressive run. Shalane Flanagan also won the U.S. Marathon championship.

Shalane Flanagan is not by any means a newcomer to marathon running. In 2008, American runner Flanagan won the Olympic bronze medal in Beijing, China. In the same year, Flanagan broke the American record in the 10,000m two times, and won three United States running titles.
