The Boston Marathon is a race that challenges an athlete in a way that most courses do not, neither buy design or intent. It is not a fast course. It is not a race where any runner, elite or back of the pack, will set a marathon PR, but it is a race for which all other marathons seek to enable athletes to arrive in a small New England town for the eastward run into the heart of bean town. This is the story of the 87th running of this event, where the last American male runner won the day, and a woman athlete named Joan ran a race for the ages.
