Boston Marathon 2006

The world's most famous marathon is today at Boston. The current temperature there is 48°F and partly cloudy. The high is expected to be in the mid 50s. Looks like perfect weather. Live race day coverage is available at the Boston Marathon's home page. Runner's World has a whole section of their site dedicated to the race.

Today's weather looks better than the last two years. From my post last year, the temperature during the 2005 race was around 63°F. The year before it was a very warm 78°F. In that post I looked at the top-ten averages for those two years. As expected, 2005 was faster by about 2 minutes for both genders. It'll be interesting to see how much faster the average will be today.

For all of my Boston Marathon posts from last year, refer to this post. In the sidebar of that post, links to the previous 10 posts were all on the 2005 Boston Marathon.
