The Rain in London Falls Mainly On the Marathon

Yesterday's weather forecast has been updated. The BBC now think:


Any marathon runner would take rain over shine ... once they get going. The downsides of rain are threefold:

1) A miserable wait at the start getting wet and cold

2) Fewer people on the course cheering you on

3) Slippery man hole covers and rains

But give me a day like this any time over 20+C ... But as I write this the skies are clearing and I wonder whether the forecast is wrong yet again and it will warm up, making for a tough run for those finishing in more than 4 hours.

Good luck to all those running.
