B.A.A. has issued weather warning

Not good, folks! I dropping my time expectations down to 3:30. Four days to go...

Newsflash from the BAA sent to all entrants

Wednesday, April 11 - As the Boston Athletic Association continues to make preparations for Monday's Boston Marathon, we are monitoring the upcoming weather conditions forecast for this area. Based on the National Weather Service's most recent report and in cooperation with the Executive Office of Public Safety (Commonwealth of Massachusetts) and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, together with the eight cities and towns along the 26.2-mile marathon route, we are planning for likely heavy rain and windy conditions on race day. However, all race day plans remain the same. The Boston Athletic Association advises participants in Monday's race to plan accordingly for their run, bringing with them gear and apparel to suit the conditions. The B.A.A. will continue to update its web site as necessary.

Ryan, be prepared for anything- including to change your goal pace back... looks like the storm might move through quickly and be done?? What are we getting ourselves into?!?! Ha ha! It's going to be memorable for sure.
