Athletics: Hasay out of Boston Marathon with heel injury

Clark County Fire Department Captain Sean Truchard is gearing up for the race in Boston Monday.

The 26-year-old's build-up to the Beantown race was not ideal as she withdrew from the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships with a sore foot, though she told us at the press conference that her foot was "doing great" and feeling "100 percent". One of those runners is Kathy Boyarko of Boardman.

The first to complete the fun run were - Tyler Howard (00.20.12), India Barwell (00.20.14) and Jordan Tate (00.22.33).

Jordan Hasay, who set records at the 2017 Boston Marathon, announced on Twitter on Sunday that she has withdrawn from this year's race.

"We don't want to get complacent after what happened five years ago and that's something we continually stress", Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said.

"It's two incredibly unique cities, incredibly unique people and now we have a common thread that bonds us", says Captain Sean Truchard, Clark County Fire Department. "The city has just a great camaraderie from everybody anyway because of the race but it feels special this year".

"It is with deep regret that I have to withdraw from tomorrow's Boston Marathon", she said in a statement through race management. "We have reclaimed the finish line, and Boston has emerged with a new strength, a resilience rooted in love", Walsh said. "Boston is a big race, and I wanted to be ready".
