Heat a factor at 116th Boston Marathon

FROM ABC SPORTS: Runners departed Hopkinton for the start of the Boston Marathon on Monday with more to worry about than the up-and-down, 26.2-mile road to Copley Square. It was 71 degrees for the women’s field when it left the start at 9:32 a.m. Temperatures were expected to rise into the mid-80s by the time they got to Boston’s Back Bay. Race organizers have warned inexperienced marathoners to sit this one out. They’ve been offered a deferment into next year’s race.

Geoffrey Mutai rode perfect temperatures last year to an unprecedented 2 hour, 3 minutes, 2 second victory that was the fastest marathon ever run. He’s back to defend his title, along with fellow Kenyan Carolina Kilel on the women’s side.
