 Well there it is, looks like a walk in the park at the Boston on Marathon Monday. At least there predicting 65* in the normal Noreaster season! I will just dress accordingly and stick to my plan while expecting the worst and hoping and praying for the best. If anybody is interested you may follow my trudge thru the marathon by texting my bib number 24132 to 234567. It's still 3 days - 1 hour - and 18 minutes till the start and that's plenty of time for the Boston weather to turn around on a dime, not likely but worth a prayer! No running today just good old carb loading till Sunday at 2:pm.....
