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.

WASHINGTON – Liberal political strategists hope to block President Donald Trump´s next Supreme Court nominee by replaying a strategy they used to help defeat the Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act last year. The multimillion-dollar plan of advertising and grass-roots activism will focus heavily on convincing two Republican defenders of the ACA, Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, to buck the president again by denying his first choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. Trump plans to reveal his selection Monday.

MONTREAL — The Montreal International Jazz Festival has cancelled the remaining presentations of a show that has been criticized because it features a white woman singing songs composed by black slaves. The festival said Wednesday it was apologizing to anyone who was hurt by the decision to put on the shows.

A bill directing the Registry of Motor Vehicles to let people choose “X” for a gender instead of male or female passed the Senate nearly unanimously and could bring the change to state-issued IDs as soon as November. The option — already available in Oregon, California, Maine and Washington, D.C. — addresses concerns by people who don’t identify as solely male or female and consider themselves non-binary, meaning neither one nor the other gender.

Researchers may have found a tiny culprit — human herpes virus — in the progressive loss of memory, thinking ability and identity that comes with Alzheimer’s disease. And it could be a big deal. In research that revives a suspicion first raised more than six decades ago, scientists have found higher levels of the common virus in the brains of people who had both behavioral symptoms and neurological evidence of Alzheimer’s at the time of their death than in the brains of deceased donors who had no signs of dementia. The researchers’ suspicions fell upon two strains of herpes virus — herpesvirus

As the Massachusetts High Technology Council took a victory lap celebrating the Supreme Judicial Court’s decision to block a ballot question on the so-called millionaire tax, a state lawmaker promised to revive the popular proposal to boost spending on education and transportation next year. State Sen.

Sanctuary cities are hailing a federal judge’s ruling yesterday that the Trump administration cannot cut off grants to Philadelphia based on the way the city deals with illegal immigrants, while opponents called the decision a defeat for public safety. U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson said the conditions the federal government placed on the City of Brotherly Love in order to receive the funding are unconstitutional, “arbitrary and capricious.” “Today’s victory for Philadelphia is a moral victory for sanctuary cities across the country,” Somerville Mayor Joseph A.

(Boston) The Moakley federal courthouse is being turned into a wedding chapel for illegal immigrant criminals desperately trying to avoid deportation from the promised land of EBT cards, Section 8 housing, Mass Health cards and Obamaphones. Last week in a U.S. District courtroom, an illegal immigrant unlicensed alleged drunk driver was married to his “fiancee,” who happens to be the mother of his 21-month-old anchor baby in, where else, Chelsea.

The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.
