Torrential Rain, Strong Winds Greet Boston

BOSTON, MA--Kudos to the Boston Marathon, held April 16, for
holding it in about as bad as weather as can be without snow
or ice. A big congratulations to all the participants,
volunteers, and other brave souls. The weather decimated
the invited elite fields, and made for some interesting new heroes
to our sport. For Karen and I, we watched the elite women
battle through brutal rain, cold, and wind in the Boston Marathon
press room. We ventured out in fowl-weather gear and protected
our camera. We turned our backs to the prevailing weather coming
in from the east. The runners were running straight into
it most of the way on the point-to-point course.
