Flanagan and Goucher at Boston. Prediction.

Postby lovetorun » Sat Apr 06, 2013 12:09 pm

I've been reading about Shalane Flanagan and Kara Goucher and how well they might do in the Boston Marathon on April 15th. With Flanagan pretty close to being in top shape but Goucher has a ways to go before she's 100% my prediction is:

Flanagan will be in top five but not win at about 2:24-25 (depending on weather of course).

Goucher will break 2:30 and be in top 10.

Flanagan has a sub-2:20 in her.
Where and when she gets it, who knows??

Goucher can go at least low-2:20's.......sub-2:22.
But if she's still in build-up and recovery, Boston may not be the place!
However, she DID look strong at Stanford!

Much depends on the pace.....and the weather!!

I'd love to see Flanagan win, but I think at least two or three of the Africans will finish ahead of her.

Flanagan 2:26, Goucher 2:30. Where they finish depends on how many Kenyans are in the race.

I would love to see one of them win. I doubt that will happen, but who knows? Both seem to be well-prepared, and I think both can finish high. As for times? Depends so much at Boston on the weather.
