If you plan to go to the 2012 Boston Marathon, bring your sunscreen.
According to Weather.com, Marathon Monday (April 16) is supposed to reach 87 degrees with a partly cloudy morning giving way to a sunny afternoon. The low temperature is 59 degrees, and there's a 10 percent chance of rain.
This year's marathon is the 116th edition of the nation's longest-tenured annual marathon. Approximately 27,000 competitors are expected to compete in the 26.2-mile race. One of the favorites is Geoffrey Kiprono Mutai, who ran the fastest marathon ever recorded during last year's race. The time was not counted as a world record because the Boston Marathon course does not meet specifications.
