I think the failure of the elites at Boston reflects on more on poor planning with the weather conditions than weight and body fat percentage. All elite runners should have a kit for near-freezing rain IMO. In addition, the coaches should be involved with helping the athletes prepare for such conditions. Maybe this will be a learning opportunity for those that struggled.

If anything, I was impressed with the general population being more prepared.


Bad post. The general population was concerned with finishing the race comfortably. The first two-three corrals wanted to run fast. Usually you warm up and wearing lots of clothes in the rain means chaffing.

The general population just got lucky with their usual overdressing. They weren't optimally prepared either. Very few were.
