On Monday in Boston, marathoners don’t just have to conquer 26.2 miles of terrain – they have to do it while dealing with drenching rain, 25-MPH winds and chilly temperatures.
It’s been called “the car wash effect” – and it does not look pleasant at all.
Don’t believe us? Check out these videos of the Boston Marathon and be glad that you aren’t there, or even worse, running it.
It’s a windy and rainy one he in Boston ahead of Marathon Monday. The temperature has been in the 30s this morning, but is expected to climb to the 40s as the day progresses. Officials are preparing for hypothermia, chafing and blisters because of the weather. #BostonMarathon pic.twitter.com/a7HdXlNpnB

(Forecasts show a 100 percent chance of precipitation until 5 p.m., so this is what it’s going to look like all day on the course.)
