They might get it wrong I suppose and the race is relatively early in the morning. Best case scenario? Low 20's say. That already would be my limit but the Terrier (and definitely Carta) seem to be ok with warm weather. Good luck to ye anyway, but don't push it if it turns out to be really hot.
Cheers C. The forecast (which let's face it, is getting pretty accurate now) is saying 22C at the start gun and 29c three hours later, rising to 33/34 in the early afternoon - the highest ever temperature for the Boston marathon FFS.
That's it - game over, no way of running in that heat - even a long walk would be inadvisable. We got a mail from the organisers yesterday which encourages runners to reconsider running at all - and not to think about running a time.
I'm finding it fair difficult to deal with this I can tell you. All that training, injury, arrangements at home to get away and the money spent on getting over going down the drain. I mean, we all knew it could be warm - but the hottest day ever? What a shitty break.
