Marathon Monday: Where to Watch the Boston Marathon Online

In case you’re at your desk Monday doing a virtual marathon of meetings and emails instead of running 26.2 miles, you can share the agony and ecstasy by running your browser over to the Universal Sports website, where the Boston Marathon will be shown live for free.

According to a couple other stories we have read the race may also be shown online via a link at the Boston Athletic Association’s site as well as at the local CBS outlet if you are in the Boston area. Take your pick. You can also watch live on TV. The race starts around 9 a.m. Eastern time for the mobility impaired participants, followed by the different flavors of wheelchairs at 9:17 and 9:22, elite women at 9:32 and elite men at 10 a.m.

One interesting side note is that the race is trying to convince people they may not want to run, since temperatures are expected to be “wicked hot” as they say in Boston at race time. But my guess is that anyone who’s gone through the trouble to qualify for Boston is going to run Boston. So maybe you walk a mile or two. Just don’t overheat, runners.
