Flanagan to return to New York


Shalane Flanagan is set to return to the scene of her greatest triumph by competing in this year’s New York City Marathon.

The 37-year-old will line up in the Big Apple on November 4 ready to take on the world’s best once again.

 “When I think about running New York, I get a feeling of ecstasy; my stomach turns,” she told the New York Times. “It’s like if you’re dating someone and it goes well and you want more.
“When I experienced winning New York last year, it was like when you’re sitting on your couch and finally something happens that you didn’t realize would happen and it excites you. But this was my real life! It was the outcome of always wanting it and not knowing if I was going to get it. And suddenly everything I’d worked for was validated. I got it.”
