Subject: RE: Brutal Weather for Boston
Look, the conditions are the same for everybody. Yes, you might be 5 minutes off your PB, but you might finish top 10 in your age group. Wouldn't you get satisfaction from that?
Seems nowadays if you don't run a fast time, even if you perform well in your age group, that the race is a bust.[/quote]
I can agree with that. For me it was no tragedy, but I left Boston feeling like I had wasted a lot of money and a lot of time. Again, just disappointment- like my beach analogy in my earlier post.
In the marathon the weather is such a huge factor that I certainly shop around for cool climates and races run at certain times of the year. I can control my training, I can control my race- that one BIG variable out of my control is the heat, and I try to do everything I can to avoid it on race day.
