Boston Marathon – Weather Alert!

Marathon Monday is almost here. There is a crazy noreaster headed to town for the weekend and it is snowing right now out my window. Yesterday there was a bit of “buzz” going around about the marathon being cancelled. It had me a little bummed, but thinking there is NO WAY they will cancel this race. So here below is the note from BAA warning of the weather and advising to dress appropriately. Honestly the weather won’t bother me, but I my end time will definitely be adjusted to account for these conditions – – STILL can’t wait to run this marathon – I have never felt so great, in shape and READY!!

See note from BAA below:

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.
