900 Boston Marathon runners receive
medical treatment along route

Boston Globe [MA], by Andy Rosen, Travis Andersen*

Original Article

Posted By:John c, 4/16/2018 4:54:23 PM

WELLESLEY — It began as a little neighborhood gathering at Carter Memorial United Methodist Church, whose new spiritual center is right along the Boston Marathon route. But as dangerously cold runners started to arrive in huge numbers at the medical tent just past the race’s halfway point, members of the church threw the doors open to create a makeshift recovery site. The food, drinks, coffee, and roaring fire in the building’s front room took on a more serious purpose as more than 50 injured competitors streamed in, many suffering from symptoms of hypothermia.

During the race it was high 30´s to low 40´s, sleet and rain. Winds out of the east (headwinds) in the 20´s gusting to the 30´s. Normal temps this time of year are overnight lows in the mid 30´s and highs in the high 50´s. Where is global warming when you need it?

I´ve heard that the cold winter weather has extended well into April in Boston and the north-east region in general. Breathing in all that very cold air while running cannot be good for you. The body normally warms air as you inspire it into your lungs but not in these large volumes.

One of the meaner Spring weather days I´ve ever been through. Really cold and windy it wasn´t running weather and many tried but bailed, and many sought medical attention because of the cold rain and wind.

The comments above are something....you all must live in perfect states that are strictly Republican! Runners are amazing athletes and although maybe not your cup of tea, they came from all around the world as they always do to run in this Marathon...

Be kind, less judgmental, not all are as perfect as you!

High 30s to low 40s is not too cold for distance running, I did it routinely in shorts and t-shirt, including running in snow in Montreal. Sleet and rain, however will suck the heat out of you and numb your skin within minutes. Most of those runners probably did not dress in more than the usual shorts and tank top to avoid the extra weight. In addition many runners in this race are from warm climates and would not have anticipated those conditions or didn´t care.

I was in the Boston area yesterday at the end of an 11 day business trip which took me to Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and eastern Massachusetts. It snowed 4 times during my travels.

I flew home yesterday but the weather delayed both of my flights. I finally arrived home 5 hours after I was supposed to and at 2am. I can’t imagine running in that weather.

Who is paying for all of this? This is like rescuing mountain climbers on a massive scale. Not to mention the incredible amount of disruption and inconvenience for people trying to get to work. You want to run, get your rear end out to the boondocks or on a circuit course.

Good Lord, there´s a bunch of fuddy-duddys here.

Entry fee for the Boston Marathon is $180 which covers a whole bunch of services including medical services.

Its a race. Sometimes the weather is nice, sometimes the weather is not. This race is on a lot of people´s bucket list and they train extensively for it. If you qualify, most likely you´re going to do it no matter what the weather.

Police officer Sean Gannon is a hero — plain and simple. His life should not have been cut so short at the young age of 32. Gannon paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep our community safe when a thug allegedly opened fire on him while searching a home the criminal was hiding out in. It is unfortunate the death penalty is not allowed in Massachusetts because Thomas Latanowich doesn’t deserve the right to breathe and is the perfect candidate for lethal injection. This sad story that unfolded on Cape Cod should be a reminder of the daily sacrifice the men and women in

What did Bob Mueller know about the FBI’s framing of four innocent men for a murder they didn’t commit, and when did he know it? This is an important question for the “special counsel,” and for two days I’ve been emailing his press office, asking for answers about his tenure in the U.S. attorney’s office here, specifically, his time as acting US attorney in 1986-87. No response. Zip, zero, nada. (Snip) The FBI knew Barboza was lying.

Scientists Discover Method of Removing
Genetic Risk Factor for Alzheimer’s

A shift from mouse models to stem cell research may have unlocked a new way to help prevent one of the world’s most tragic incurable diseases. Scientists have isolated the primary genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s Disease. The gene is called apoE4, a variant of apoE3 that more than doubles an individual’s risk of contracting the degenerative neurological disease and increases it twelvefold with just two copies. The difference between the healthy apoE3 and the potentially deadly apoE4 is minimal but just enough to cause the latter to break into disease-causing fragments in the brain. But neither this discovery, nor

(Boston) Transgender runners who qualify can take part in the Boston Marathon as their identified gender, according to Boston Marathon officials. The issue has garnered attention following a profile in Canadian Running of three transgender women signed up for the race. Comments to the article included reservation from readers that the elevated testosterone levels would potentially bump other women from the race, who would otherwise have qualified. Though there is no explicit policy on trans runners, according to the Boston Athletic Association, the organizers behind the marathon, runners have been asked for "several years" to compete in the marathon with

Boston — The Latest on a major late-winter storm pounding the East Coast (all times local): 2:15 p.m. A fierce storm bringing high winds and heavy rain is causing problems around the northeast. The National Weather Service says some of the highest gusts Friday had been observed in Rhode Island, where the wind toppled a container truck as it crossed the Newport Pell Bridge. The span and two other bridges in the state were closed to high-profile vehicles. Outside Philadelphia, a tree crashed onto the roof of a commuter bus, halting traffic on one of the area’s busiest highways. No injuries were reported.

LIMA, Peru — Pope Francis´ top adviser on clerical sex abuse implicitly rebuked the pontiff for having accused Chilean victims of slander, saying Saturday that his words were "a source of great pain for survivors of sexual abuse." Cardinal Sean O´Malley, the archbishop of Boston, said he couldn´t explain why Francis "chose the particular words he used." He said such expressions had the effect of abandoning victims and relegating them to "discredited exile." In an extraordinary effort at damage control, O´Malley insisted in a statement that Francis "fully recognizes the egregious failures of the church and its clergy who abused children and

An Alaska oil explorer with a string of wins under his belt claims his latest discovery is the largest in the U.S. since the Prudhoe Bay oil field in 1968, and contains about 3 billion barrels of recoverable oil. But Bill Armstrong´s large corporate partner, Oil Search, is far more cautious, and says the so-called Nanushuk field on the North Slope contains at least 500 million barrels of recoverable oil, though with the potential for much more. "What we see is there is an awful lot of running room," said Keiran Wulff, the company´s executive general manager for exploration and new ventures.

The report punctures claims by pro-amnesty advocates that young ‘dreamer’ illegals are vital to U.S. industry and civic life, and indicate that any amnesty will ensure that many more crimes — including murders and rapes — will be inflicted against Americans and legal immigrants, including Hispanics and blacks.   The report says:  Unfortunately, if the goal of DACA is to give citizenship to a particularly law-abiding group of undocumented immigrants, it is accomplishing the opposite

On a day meant to honor Martin Luther King Jr., U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren stole the spotlight instead, tearing into President Trump in a fiery speech that should generate more fuel for her national ambitions. Warren’s charge that Trump is a “racist bully” came as her campaign released new eye-popping numbers showing she’s coming into her 2018 re-election campaign with more than $14 million in the bank. The Massachusetts Democrat has three credible GOP opponents, but she still seems more intent on raising her national profile and cementing her status as Trump’s top sparring partner.

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.

McDougal said she is "relieved to be able to tell the truth" about her story. McDougal, who alleges she had a sexual relationship with Mr. Trump over 10 months in 2006 and 2007, had sued over the $150,000 contract she had with American Media, Inc., the company that owns The National Enquirer, for keeping her from speaking about it.

University of Michigan Professor Sarah Ensor published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants. Originally highlighted by the Twitter account New Real Peer Review, Ensor’s journal article explores the field of “ecosexuality,” a term which means the sexual relationship between humans and plants. Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth.

President Donald Trump’s tax cuts will be anything but for about 1 million California taxpayers who will owe Uncle Sam more money a year from now. They’re the Californians who will lose a collective $12 billion because the new law caps a deduction they have been able to take for paying their state and local taxes, according to a new analysis by the Franchise Tax Board.
