(The Race)





Congratulations to Dan, Shelley, Norm, Heleen and Stephanie for their successful completions of the 128th running of the Boston Marathon.

Boston Marathon A tough day, a PB, an electric energy I’ll never forget and a dream realized I never knew I had. Start lines are a privilege… big thanksto the friends who helped me reach this iconic start line in Hopkinton. Onward     (Shelley Walushka)

Last time I ran the event was 2012. I have to say that the course is every bit as devastating to the quads as I remember. This was a special day as my family decided to visit Boston and be my cheering squad. It was a fun day but I may have to take a bit more down time after this one. I guess the 6th time’s a charm…..it was a personal best out of all my Boston races!!!!!   (Steph Koett)

Sisay Lemma stuns Evans Chebet in men's Boston Marathon; Hellen Obiri win women's title
Richard Morin

In the elite men's group, Ethiopian Sisay Lemma denied Evans Chebet, 35, of his third straight victory. The Kenyan would have been only the fifth man in the race's more than 125-year history to win in three straight years. Ethiopian Sisay Lemma denied Evans Chebet of a historic third-straight victory with an unofficial time of 2:06.17 to win the elite men's division of the 2024 Boston Marathon. Chebet finished in third place.

Kenyan Hellen Obiri defended her title from an elite women's field that race organizers described as "historically fast." The 34-year-old crossed the finish line first for the second consecutive year. Obiri, who finished with an unofficial time of 2:22.37, broke away from a group of almost a dozen women and showed her dominance in the final stretch through Brookline and down Kenmore Square to get the win.Sharon Lokedi finished in second and Edna Kiplagat came home third.

Rainbow Cooper, a 22-year-old from Great Britain, was the first in the women's wheelchair division to cross the finish line with an unofficial time of 1:35:11 in just her second Boston Marathon.

Marcel Hug did it again.

The "Silver Bullet," nicknamed for his trademark silver helmet, broke his own course record to defend his Boston Marathon title in the men's wheelchair division with an unofficial time of 1:15:32. The win marks his seventh Patriots' Day victory.

Hug broke the course record by a minute during his 2023 win and shaved off another 30 seconds Monday.

Chapter 6
Malc Kent: The Evolution of the Running Specialist
(Part 2 of 2)

In 2013 and 2014, a significant shift had occurred in the running technology game. Body-mounted sensors had evolved and were now starting to get smart and deliver some very interesting insights. I had seen first-hand how Garmin had progressed with developing indoor pace readout from the watch, as well as wrist-based heart rate and basic running dynamics information. And I’d seen first-hand how Stryd had developed the world’s first reliable running power meter. From pretty early on I had come to realize that running gait analysis would move away from labs and would be reliably and accurately measured outside, in any environment.
