Should I be worried??



Wednesday, April 11 - As the Boston Athletic Association continues to make preparations for Monday's Boston Marathon, we are monitoring the upcoming weather conditions forecast for this area. Based on the National Weather Service's most recent report and in cooperation with the Executive Office of Public Safety (Commonwealth of Massachusetts) and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, together with the eight cities and towns along the 26.2-mile marathon route, we are planning for likely heavy rain and windy conditions on race day. However, all race day plans remain the same. The Boston Athletic Association advises participants in Monday's race to plan accordingly for their run, bringing with them gear and apparel to suit the conditions. The B.A.A. will continue to update its web site as necessary.

looks like it's going to be pretty ugly. I was listening to the radio on the way to work this morning and they were talking about how bad it would have to be for them to cancel the race. And the official stance was that the weather would have to be "catastrophic". heh.

Running a marathon in the rain and wind builds character. No biggie. Been there and done that. And this is just a training run for big sur right? Isnt that what you said? Heck worst case, when you get to brookline, just hang a left and head home! You could probably take a warm shower, grab a bite to eat, get on some dry clothes, then finish the race! :-) :-)

Well, you certainly have my sympathy! Cold, windy and rainy. Yuck!!! Character-bulding though it may be, it still ain't all it's cracked up to be! I'll be thinking kind thoughts for you on Monday, to be sure!

If it snows, I'll be sympathetic. Maybe.
