The Boston Marathon is Monday and there's a number of ways to see the action.
Universal Sports will be broadcasting the race on the web. Connect to the action at http://www.universalsports.com/
There will be real time web coverage at http://www.runnersworld.com/ and http://www.runningtimes.com/
And, of course - lots of information (including web coverage) at the Boston Athletic Association site @ http://www.baa.org/
The BAA's athlete tracking isn't quite as user-friendly as some other races: But, if you know someone who is racing and are willing to spend a couple of minutes on the website, you can get their numbers and track their performances through the race at multiple check points.
It will be exciting to see if Meb Keflezghi or Ryan Hall can finally break the domination of the East African's and bring the laurel wreath back to the US.
