The Progress-Index - - SPORTS -

BOS­TON — Af­ter slog­ging through just a few miles of icy rain and a near-gale head­wind that made her feel like she was run­ning in place, De­siree Lin­den de­cided she’d seen enough of the Bos­ton Marathon for an­other year.

A two-time Olympian and the 2011 Bos­ton Marathon run­ner-up, Lin­den de­cided to stick around, out­last­ing the weather and the rest of the field to win the race’s 122nd edi­tion on Mon­day in 2 hours, 39 min­utes, 54 sec­onds.
