  • Andrea Joyner reaches Mile 21 after cresting Heartbreak Hill during the Boston Marathon in Newton MA

The 123rd Boston Marathon takes place Monday, and several runners with OR ties are among the contenders on what is expected to be rainy day. Hours of running and countless miles on the road, all invested in an effort to minimize the pain of the ensuing 26.2 miles ahead.

For the last week, meteorologists have been forecasting another soggy Boston Marathon for runners and spectators alike. Some 2,500 runners were treated by medical staff for hypothermia and other conditions related to the cold, wet weather. Boston will see a few showers cross the area Monday morning, and some could be heavy - but rain should be east of the area by 9 a.m.

In order to minimize the amount of time runners are waiting in the rain, the Boston Athletic Association adjusted start times to condense the amount of time between the third and fourth wave of runners.

Defending champions Des Linden and Yuki Kawauchi have said they're not bothered by the forecast for a rainy, windy day because they won a year ago in similar conditions.

Per weather.com, the forecasted low for Monday is 44 degrees Fahrenheit with a high of 64 degrees.
