Marathon Monday is back after a 3-year hiatus, and it's the 50th anniversary of women being officially allowed to enter the race.

In this episode, I give you one of my favorite Boston stories to commemorate the year that Bobbi Gibb became the first woman to run Boston as a bandit in 1966. 

I also break today the elite fields on both sides and give you my predictions for the podiums as well as the top Americans.

Then, I give my recommended Boston race plan for those toeing the line on Monday, as well as some crazy stats about the difficulty of running a negative split on this iconic course.

If you aren't running on Monday, then you should definitely be watching. I will be in Boston to cheer and coach myself, and I hope to see some of you there!
