For those tracking the Boston Marathon (on right now): Raining with 40 degree temps & 25 MPH winds (wind chill in the upper 20s). Ouch! All 3 of the American women favorites are in the lead pack (probably through mile 4 or 5. Also, Galen Rupp looks like a Wild West bandit.

Coach McClay just finished the Boston Marathon in 2:51:24! Looked like a gutsy effort in horrific conditions.

How 'bout the sportsmanship shown by Des Linden! As one of the pre-race favorites, drops off the lead pack & slows down to help Shalane Flanagan, then comes back and wins the thing by five minutes! Karma, anyone?

@ParkviewCoachDXC It is hard to overembellish Coach McCLay's effort in those conditions. A 2:51 is crazy good!!! Great Job Coach. I was out there today too and it nearly broke me.

Yes, some VERY miserable conditions out there. I'm very sore today moving around doing demonstrations while teaching. But like coach Carter said, how about that Des Linden! That is such a heartwarming and inspirational story. Stuff like that reminds all of us why we love this sport.
