Shalane Flanagan had run a 10,000m in 31:09, a very fast time, on a day where she was quite tired.
The interview that follows was Shalane Flanagan chatting about the upcoming Boston marathon this weekend.
Mark my word, Shalane Flanagan is her to race, and she wants to improve her time, but most importantly, Flanagan wants the winner’s wreath in Boston.
