Rumble Shalane Flanagan, a resident of Portland, Oregon, made history on Sunday, November 5, as she was the first American woman to win the New York City marathon since 1977. Thirty-six-year-old Flanagan told The New York Times that the win had even greater significance for her, as it came just days after a terrorist attack in New York City killed 8 and injured at least 12 more.
