The Boston Marathon is taking place Monday, and conditions are just about the furthest thing from ideal. The wet, windy forecast even cancelled a baseball game between the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox one day in advance.

Nevertheless, the strong-willed runners are taking to the 26.2-mile course in hopes of securing a prestigious victory.

It’s fair to say that Twitter users are less enthused at the prospect of battling the elements. But that’s why we’re taking in the Marathon from our computers, not the Boston streets.
