#257: 2017 Boston Marathon Recap

Sarah and co-host Amanda Loudin bring you this year’s Boston Marathon recap, from which world record was broken to how many children the women’s winner has. (And whether it’s more impressive that she won after birthing them…or trained while mothering them!) The gals dissect the once-again unseasonable heat, and why it might have been worse than the 2012 Boston (which they both ran) when temps touched 89 degrees. Find out if Sarah and Amanda hold onto dreams of running Boston again. Listen to the marathon version of a booze cruise Amanda is helping organize for a gal-pal. And marvel along with SBS how the number 50 keeps popping up!

  1. Loving the podcasts! I am a charity runner and have been for a couple of marathons (5:53 is my marathon PR)…Houston and Marine Corps. Both have a strict time limit to finish…charity runner or not. I understand the frustration from the charity runner but I also understand that volunteers working the race have been out there for hours as well. Its a tough call…

  2. Sara, this is from the Wikipedia page:

    Kiplagat and her husband have five children – two of her own, two adopted from her sister who died of breast cancer in 2003, and one adopted from a neighbor who died in childbirth in 2013. Her children Wendy, 9, and Carlos, 13, were at the finish line and award ceremony for her victory in the 121st annual Boston Marathon.[21]

    She started the Edna Kiplagat Foundation to raise awareness of breast cancer. [22] Kiplagat also volunteers to create awareness for garbage management toward keeping a clean environment. [19]
