Today in Canadian Distance Running: Gareau wins Boston!

Today in Canadian distance running - April 21, 1980 - Jacqueline Gareau won the Boston Marathon in a time of 2:34:28. Unfortunately, her moment of victory was spoiled as Rosie Ruiz - who hadn't run the entire distance - was initially declared the winner. Between 1979-1983, Gareau consistently produced top-5 Marathon finishes in Boston (4x), along with Ottawa, Tokyo, and the 1983 World Championships in Finland.
