Let's use this thread for updates. Perfect weather for the race. Cool and calm.

Just saw Merhawi Keflezighi (Meb's brother). He was nervous but said Meb is ready and healthy and the time off after NYC may have helped him.

Merhawi also had Meb's Breathe Right strip in his hand (at NYC Meb left the strip in his shoes and it caused blisters).

Men on the start.

Not saying that it will ultimately matter, but Hall is stupid.

I'm surprised no one is using the Ustream app for a Droid or Iphone. Cheap, live streaming.

Joseph Chirlee of US Army is up there. As is Brian Olinger in his marathon debut. Hall has dropped his hat.

33 degrees at start.

Hall leading, Trafeh right behind him, then Meb, Ritz, Abdi, Chirlee, and Olinger are clear of everyone.
