Officials prep the corrals for Monday's race.

Boston-bound runners, get ready for some sunshine. 

If you’ve been whining about the cold this winter or daydreaming about bright sunny streets, you got your wish: Boston is going to be 16 C for the marathon and the sun will be OUT. 

Pale people, lather up in sunscreen. Spectators, bring a pair of sweet shades. Don’t be a fool and run in tights, it’s going to feel like an early summer day. Just be thankful the race isn’t happening on Sunday… that 25 C heat does no runner any good. 

Not a fan of running in anything over 10C with cloud-cover? Man, you’re just going to have to go with the flow. And don’t let any of those Kenyans hear you whimpering about some sunlight. Canadians, don’t give them a reason to laugh. Please.

But don’t worry, it’s not going to be as hot as that time when the crowd had to hose down runners

Less than four days to go! Best of luck!
