The 2011 Boston Marathon, the 115th running of the world's most famous marathon, is nearly here, with the Athletes Village growing more crowded as the start time draws closer. The Boston is a bit chilly, but perfect if you're planning on running 26.2 miles this morning.
By 10 a.m. ET, when the elite's get started, the forecast is calling for it to be sunny and 50 degrees, with the temperature climbing to 56 by the time they finish.
The Boston Marathon will air on WBZ-TV (Channel 4) locally, while nationally it can be found on Universal Sports. We'll provide updates in this StoryStream throughout the day, and there are plenty of love blogs around the Internet to keep you informed throughout the race.
