Kenyans Kirui, Kiplagat win 121st Boston Marathon

Switzer formed 261 Fearless, a nonprofit running club for women that has groups across the country.

"I wanted to run the race and support the bombing survivors, to show them that life goes on and all you have to do is just push through it", Sanchez told Uproxx days before his first Boston Marathon in 2016. The Marine lost the lower part of his leg after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan in 2011.

There are three more waves that set up a staggered start: wave two at 10:25 a.m., wave three at 10:50 a.m. and wave four at 11:15 a.m.

If he finishes, the 32-year-old Kenyan will be the first professional to complete all six major marathons plus the world championships and the Olympics. Now 70 years old, she's back at the starting line, wearing the same number that was nearly taken from her 50 years ago. Switzer was chased by a race official who tried to stop her competing.

Even its CEO, Travis Kalanick, found himself in a spot after he was videotaped arguing with an Uber driver over falling incomes. For the final quarter of 2016, gross bookings increased 28 percent from the previous quarter, to $6.9 billion.

Edna Kiplagat, of Kenya, wins the women's division of the 121st Boston Marathon on Monday, April 17, 2017, in Boston.

Mobility impaired athletes - the blind and those with prostheses or other challenges - started at 8:50 a.m. Monday.

Kiplagat, a 38-year-old mother of two whose resume includes marathon wins in London, Moscow, New York and Daegu, ran alone for the final miles of the race and finished in 2:21:52, nearly a minute ahead of Bahrain's Rose Chelimo. Sculptor Pablo Eduardo will create the markers.

Evans has been the city's police commissioner since 2014.

A voice over follows with Sachin Tendulkar saying: "I was only 10-years-old when India first won the World Cup (1983)". We get to see glimpses of his popular matches, including his famous Sharjah conquests and the 2011 World Cup win.

"We'll have some people every year who'll behave in a way that they shouldn't", Boston Athletic Association executive director Tom Grilk told the Boston Globe.

The art installation at the bombing sites is scheduled to be complete by April 2018.

Jimmy Golen has covered the Boston Marathon since 1995. This is Hug's third straight Boston Marathon win. Guiding Eyes for the Blind CEO Thomas Panek, who will be running Boston, visited the finish line with two other puppies on Sunday - these were a few weeks old already - and attracted a lot of attention. Along the way, they were expected to be slowed by temperatures rising into the 70s. Running fast enough to earn an entrance into the most prestigious 26.2-mile race of all time is a goal many will never achieve. "If you ran the distance in practice, I'd be the first to take you to Boston". But if she could run the distance in practice he promised to take her to Boston.

The Kenyan policewoman opened up a big lead heading into the Newton hills, and she cruised to victory in an unofficial 2 hours, 21 minutes, 53 seconds in Monday's 121st running of the race.
