2010 New York City Marathon Women's Division Won By Kenya's Edna Kiplagat, American Shalane Flanagan Finishes Second

Edna Kiplagat of Kenya won the women's side of the 2010 ING New York City Marathon, finishing in an unofficial time of 2:28:20. It's her second win of the year, after winning the Los Angeles Marathon in March. 

American Shalane Flanagan -- in her first ever marathon -- finished second, roughly 20 seconds behind Kiplagat. 

An American woman has not won the NYC Marathon since 1977. 

Kiplagat spend a majority of the second half of the race running with Flanagan and Kenya's Mary Keitany before she kicked and pulled away in the final few miles in Central Park. Keitany, also running her first ever marathon, ran the first 13.1 miles in 1:06:36, the second fastest time in the history of the ING NYC Marathon, and finished third.
