3 miles on the mill this a.m.

Finally, after 3 weeks of weirdness, I am back to a “normal” (if you can call this life normal) schedule.

Flood Warnings and Wind Advisories are in effect for much of the Boston area!
The 111th Boston Marathon kicked off at 9:35 this a.m. with heavy rain, high winds, and flooding on some parts of the course to greet runners. Over 2000 were “no-shows” for the race this year, primarily due to horrific weather conditions in the region no doubt. Power was out in some parts and there were many airport delays and cancellations as well. Glad I’m not running this year! I doubt there will be any course records set today.

Masazumi Soejima of Japan has won the men’s wheelchair division of the Boston Marathon in an unofficial time of one hour, 29 minutes and 15 seconds.

Wakako Tsuchida of Japan has won the women’s wheelchair division of the Boston Marathon.

Women’s Winner

33 year-old Lidiya Grigoryeva of Russia won the 111th Boston Marathon in a time of 2:29:18. She reached into the crowd to grab a flag moments before crossing the finish line.

Cheruiyot Repeats

Kenyan Robert Cheruiyot is the repeat winner of the Boston Marathon, crossing the finish line in 2:14:13, 7 minutes off the course record that he set here last year.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork...There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard."
