It was the second competitive marathon for Sellers, who was a distance runner at Weber State. Nicole Dimercurio, in sixth place, stands between them.
Linden is no stranger to athletic success - she was the first US woman in 40 years to win the New York City Marathon in 2017 - and she's come a long way since her days as a Hilltop High School student in Chula Vista.
Linden, a 34-year-old Californian, overcame the heartbreak of 2011, when she finished second in the marathon by two seconds, and won in an unofficial time of 2:39:54.
Flanagan, who surprised many when she captured New York City in November, finished in seventh place, almost 20 minutes slower than her New York-winning time.
"Yes, I'm happy, given the conditions and the cramping, the cramping really slowed me down... so I'm happy yeah", he said.
"I told her (Flanagan) in the race, I said if there's anything I can do to help you out, let me know because I might just drop out", Linden said in a statement. The California native earned multiple All-America honors.
After Monday's race, Linden showed a sense of humor by posting a photo of herself at the Boston Marathon with the caption: "6th time's a charm".
Still, she and Flanagan were neck-and-neck at about the 12-mile mark when the latter decided she needed a bathroom break. He is the first Asian runner to win the race since Korea's Lee Bong-Ju in 2001. I knew she was in good shape because her workouts were going so well. "It's storybook. I'm thrilled to be here and to get it done", Linden said. He said the woman's kindness made his day and he went on social media, hoping to find her so he could return the jacket and thank her. "So, I took it out to try and shake it (lead pack) down a little bit". Im just very glad that I made it.. "That's kind of what happened".
Flanagan, though, didn't take the break alone. The entire race from that point on was a grueling grind of mind over body. "I mean, 2:45 is fast".
It was a nasty day for a race, with officials announcing that the temperature of 38 degrees at the 8:40 a.m.
"If my knees hadn't failed me, I would be there every year for the rest of my life."
"One of them, I think was (Shadrock) Biwott, and we went together".
Sellers' husband, Blake, spoke to the Globe after his wife placed second, and he was overjoyed and so proud of what she'd accomplished.
"I always felt like her career should have ended better", Pilkington told the Tribune.
Despite the miserable running conditions, Peck averaged more than eight miles per hour for most of the race. For Maxwell, this was the eighth Boston Marathon.
"I just feel like it's the time", the Bostonian said days before the race. I want something salty. I couldnt even see because the wind was so strong..
