BOSTON (USA): Following victory at the TCS New York Marathon last Sunday, Shalane Flanagan says it is too early to decide whether she will next aim for the Boston Marathon in April. "It's just when you have a big moment like this and then people ask that question, but it's important right now to soak in the moment. Ever since I was a little girl and watching the Boston Marathon I always dreamed of winning my own major marathon," she told the Boston Herald in response to being courted by Boston CEO Tom Grilk. "I want to let (a decision) come naturally. Maybe in a couple of weeks."

RunBlogRun opines: Shalane Flanagan just had the race of her life. The offer from major marathons after such a win could be impressive. Boston marathon is a natural for this American star from Marblehead.
