This is a dewpoint of 54F. That's very ideal. It's just not an issue AT ALL. Find another excuse.

Well the temperatures were above 60 for nearly the whole race. And I'm not convinced that 58 and near 100% humidity is a nonissue for all non acclimated humans.

Why use data from the airport out in Boston Harbor when Weather Underground has thousands of stations? They have several stations right on the course, and many more within a mile of the course..

It was my first Boston and I spent the last five months training in Michigan in temps generally below freezing and in the dark. I found it very warm and my body was not ready for it. I hit the Newton hills just as the sun came out and overheated, along with many other runners.
If I ran in those conditions in September after a summer of training I would probably have done better but it was pretty rough. Almost all runners I spoke with afterwards agreed, although they were also from cold climates.
