Boston Marathon officials issue heat warning

Monday's Boston Marathon may not be as crowded as some had anticipated with temperatures expected to approach 90 degrees.

The Boston Athletic Association is allowing runners to defer their entry into the race until the 2013 marathon as a way of discouraging some from taking on what could be dangerously hot weather.

Watch the video to see who race officials are doing to prepare for the heat and what advice they're giving to even the most seasoned marathoner who decides not to take the day off.

    Really. Oprah Winfrey is without a doubt one of the ugliest women ever. Look at her! Her physical grotesqueness is unmistakeable. Not to be judging her book by her cover...but hoely craep! Her insides have got to be as ugly as her outsides, at least.

    I mean, look how pretty Whitney Houston was on the outside...but on the inside all full of crack hoe. If something that pretty can be that ugly, imagine Oprah's innards.

    It is not natural for a woman to grow to the size of a water buffalo. It goes against nature, not along with it.

    Barney Frank (D-Mass) What? Barney Frank has had access to the best of Boston healthcare, and look at him. Healthy? Hardly.

  6. Access to healthcare

    Barney Frank and Oprah Winfrey are living proof that access to healthcare has very little to do with health.

      Don't forget Chris Christie and Rush Limbaugh but then how does this all relate to the Boston Marathon?

  7. Access to healthcare...

    ...is really access to expensive knock-offs of cheap street drugs.

    Ogre Winfrey:
    Romans 2:1
    You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.

    "Quit mixing in company with greedy people, drunkards, and fornicators. Remove the wicked from among yourselves"-1 Corinthians 5:9-13 (we are forbidden from judging someone as deserving of God destroying them, NOT from deciding whom to associate with)

      If I am getting what your trying to say, it's okay to judge and make fun of people but only if you don't know the or hang out with them? What kind of bs is that? No wonder people don't believe in that crap anymore if that's the way its explained.

    Go ahead and judge my fat as I have judged theirs. It's not me causing our nationwide obesity epidemic that has spread from overly obese Americans even to our children, like a disease. I say Barney Frank and Ogre Widfrey are greedy obese people whose lifestyle choices should be avoided, not tolerated or approved of, and certainly not held on high.

    Hell is a mythical place devised by evil men to control the ignorant masses. Before the King James version, the word 'hell' was never in the bible. Words like grave and pit were. No loving God would even think about allowing people to be burned alive forever.
