The 2018 Boston Marathon took place on Monday and 34-year-old runner Desiree Linden became the first American to win the women’s race in 33 years.

Linden, who represented the United States in both the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, endured the rain and cold Boston temperatures to take the history-making victory, the first for an American woman in this marathon since 1985. Her time was 2 hours 39 minutes 53 seconds.
