By Larry Eder 
For me, the 2017 Boston Marathon, with the heat, humidity and wind, was still one of the finest races in the event’s storied history. Americans had two women and six men in the top ten in each elite race. 30,000 runners battled heat, humidity and wind on April 17, 2017.
Edna KIplagat and Geoffrey Kirui showed that running for the first time on the course does not dampen your chance of running well through the towns around Boston.
Here are five things I learned from observing the 2017 Boston Marathon.
1. Edna Kiplagat is formidable, at the age of 38. 
When will we learn? Carlos Lopes won the 1984 Olympic marathon at the age of 36. Jack Foster took the 1974 Commonwealth Games silver medal in the marathon at the age of 41. Age is in our minds. Edna Kiplagat trained well, and she sensed the time to break the field, charging uphill between miles 19 and 20, and running 5:22, an astounding mile uphill. Kiplagat won the 2013 World Championships in hot Moscow, so the warm weather in Boston didn’t hurt her.
