The Killer Inside Shalane Flanagan


This past November, a 29-year-old American named Shalane Flanagan found herself leading the ING New York City Marathon with three miles to go. At 110th Street, where Fifth Avenue kisses the corner of Central Park, she ran elbow-to-elbow with Edna Kiplagat and Mary Keitany, two of the best distance athletes in the world. Kiplagat had won the Los Angeles Marathon earlier in the year; Keitany was the reigning half-marathon world champion. (Runner's World)
