This video, playing up the battle between the three Americans (Kara Goucher, Shalane Flanagan and Des Davila) is just the kind of thing that road races and marathons need to do to promote their events. Only issue here is that Des is out with continued challenges recovering from her injuries.
We salute Boston for having the focus to present what should be their focus each year, the American elite field. Major US marathons focusing on US athletes is key if we want the story of road racing, and our sport to grow in stature. Nice job Boston and JHFS!
A great video and kudos to JHFS for posting this!
