Boston Weather

Just so no one out there thinks that last week's Boston Marathon weather might be typical (in the end, conditions were really not too bad for running)...

In the week before the marathon, it was cold and there was a mixture of snow, sleet and rain.

One week after the marathon -- 7 days to be exact -- the temperature hit a sunny (Phoenix-like) 90 degrees.

90 degrees.

That is one of the many factors that makes the Boston marathon unique. You really have no idea what the weather will be like until the race starts.

Back to the heat... Monday was a day off (so I missed the hot day). I ran about 6 1/2 miles on Tuesday. It was well into the 70's. I was dying out there, but happy to be running on mostly dry trails again.

Today was almost perfect. Low 60's. I ran almost 6 miles at lunchtime (trails again).

Not much else to report.

Schizophrenic weather, for sure!

Thanks for your support on my last post! Sounds like you're doing great.

I ran two races this yeas, one in January, one in May. Both times it was way colder than normally during the event, and much colder than the forecast.
