Boston-04/13/2019 Boylston Street at the Boston Marathon finish line is packd with people as thousands came out to take

For those of not strong or courageous enough to run the race, we can follow along from the (dry) comfort of work or home with the BAA's marathon tracker that will allow you to keep tabs of friends or family as they wind their way through the area. Volunteers will receive hand warmers. But it's not as cold as expected, with temperatures in the 60s as runners arrived instead of the 30s that were initially forecast.

Or, pretty much a rerun of last year's miserable race. Tent walls and heat will be added at the staging areas, and more ponchos will be available.

Runners from wave 2, 3 and 4 were asked to stay in buses on Boston Common or inside the Boston Common garage.

Organizers also eliminated a 25-minute gap in the start times for two waves of runners.

"The marathon is run on Patriots' Day or it's not run", BAA CEO Tom Grilk said Friday, according to 4WBZ.

Boston may be in for heavy rain and possibly a thunderstorm, according to the National Weather Service, and wind gusts could reach 28 miles per hour.

Come what may, though, the race will be held on April 15.
