Spokane, Washington—Last year Ethiopians had their way over the 12-kilometer course, as they went one-two in both the men's and women's divisions of the Lilac Bloomsday Run. But this year Kenya was back in the forefront, as Rosemary Wanjiru led four other Kenyans to the line in the women's race, while it took some determined running by Tanzania's Gabriel Geay to foil a similar sweep in the men's division. Geay, who notched his second Bloomsday victory in three tries, was chased to the line by five Kenyan men.

The Boston Marathon is true rite of Spring. This year, the weather looked to be horrific early on, but as RunBlogRun senior writer David Hunter noted, prior to the race: "Thunder claps at 7:00 AM in Back Bay. Strong rain. Windshield wipers on at full speed. Had hooded slicker on. But pants got soacked during ten minute walk to Copley Plaza Hotel. Looks Like rain stopped in Hopkinton and Ashland. Temp in 60's. Meaningful tailwind.Could get to 70 later in the day. Much better than '18. Miserable 90 minutes ago. But looks improving now."
