    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Veterans of the Niagara Falls International Marathon were shocked by what they saw Sunday.

    Blue skies. Warm temperatures. No rain coats. They’re so used to lousy weather, being dry is like a consolation prize.

    It made for more smiles and a bigger crowd cheering them on during the annual run, which saw more than 5,500 runners participate.

    “It’s a beautiful race,” raved Gwen Bartlett of Oakville, who completed the half-marathon portion of the event. “It’s nice and flat, and the scenery is great.”
