Rain Didn't Hold Back Marathon Runners
A Canadian placed third in the women's race at the 2018 Boston Marathon.
Krista DuChene, a 41-year-old mother of three from Strathroy, finished in a time of 2:44:20.
Desiree Linden of the United states won in 2:39:54.
Times were slower than usual due to persistent rain in Boston.
The only Canadian to win the race was Jacqueline Gareau in 1980.
Canada also earned a top-10 finish in the men's race, with Hamilton's Reid Coolsaet finishing ninth in 2:25:02.
Yuki Kawauchi finished first to earn Japan's first Boston Marathon title since 1987.
