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.

    That you would take the word of our LORD and use it to cloak
    your HATE is not an act of a Godly Man. Repent and walk with JESUS, for our time is nearly done.

    Obviously not many when your ashamed to quote scripture under your usual S/N
    Would that be the sign of a SMART person?
    Guess it depends on what is valued by humans.

    1 Samuel 16:7 "... Because mere man sees what appears to the eyes, but as for Jehovah, he sees what the HEART is."
    My point with this scripture is
    Who would be MORE valuable to God? A "smart person" or one who "exercises Faith"

    I am smart ONLY because I keep pursuing God, even when I fail.
    I am smart ONLY because I keep pursuing God, rather than man
    I am smart ONLY because I keep pursuing God, even when I get in the way of that pursuit.
