Who could forget the finish at the Boston Marathon in April with Kilel and American Desiree Davila racing stride for stride all the way to the finish line? In the end, it was Kilel who took the victory, her first in a major marathon. The 30-year-old Kenyan, who is known for her strong finishing kick, has won five big city marathons over the course of her career. Can she add New York to her resume in November? If it comes down to a finishing sprint through Central Park, the chances are good.
