Very hot (low 70s at race start, low 80s at finish). Boston officials encouraged runners to skip the race in favor of next year. Both the men’s and women’s champions were 9+ minutes slower than last year’s times. Uli Steidl was 1st masters finisher in 2:22 and 15th overall!!
Obviously, on a day like today, place and just finishing is far more important than time. Despite this, everyone from our group finished, which is amazing!

By the way, Boston doesn't do age groups until the Masters category.
