"I have tiered goals," Flanagan said. "I want to run another PR. I want to break 2:20 – that's another big goal for women. And then the American record."

 "We think Berlin is one of the fastest, if not the fastest courses," Flanagan said.

 "I'm getting older,"  Flangan Said. "I feel like if I want to go for one really fast marathon without something big on the line, if I want to give myself one shot to run on a fast course and run to my potential, I shouldn't wait too much longer." 

Last year's women's Berlin marathon winner Florence Kiplagat of Kenya clocked 2:21.13.  The course record stands at 2:19:12 by Mizuki Noguchi of Japan in 2005. 

Kenyan Wilson Kipsang at a year ago set a new Marathon World Record on this course clocking 2:03:23.
