"It is with deep regret that I have to withdraw from tomorrow's Boston Marathon", the 26-year-old said in a statement.

Lisa Larsen Weidenbach was the last United States woman to win this race, in 1985, but a group of highly talented home runners may find the way to amend that record against an global field whose most obvious contender is Kenya's defending champion Edna Kiplagat.

American runner Jordan Hasay, who finished third among women at last year's Boston Marathon and was seen as a contender this year, announced on Twitter that she has withdrawn from tomorrow's race because of a foot injury.

Later that year, the former University of OR star followed with a third-place finish at the Chicago Marathon, with an improved time of 2:20:57.

The cloud on Hasey's horizon, however, is that she has reportedly been suffering from a foot injury. She was also second to Rose Chelimo in the World Track and Field Championships marathon and fourth in NY.

Last year, Hasay set the record for the fastest debut ever for an American woman in the Boston Marathon by three minutes, finishing third with a time of 2:23:00.
