On the blog: Ian Chillag says he's freezing in short shorts.

Our own Ian Chillag is milling around the chilly starting point for today's Boston Marathon. In a couple of hours Chillag will light out for Boston with the great Amby Burfoot, helping to pace the 1968 winner all the way home. Ian aims to post an update on Twitter every mile or so, and he promises to send pictures. A few minutes ago, we asked him to send a photo. You're looking at it.

Ian, babe, we love you. Run on.
