The Boston Marathon is making changes to security, after last year's deadly bombing. Whitney Burbank has the details. "I was just planning on wearing as little as possible, lightweight shorts and a light singlet." Those planning on wearing a little more than Robert Gibson while running the Boston Marathon may want to rethink their outfits, in light of the Boston Athletic Association's new regulations. Runners will not be allowed to bring bags of clothers to the starting line or finish line. But, the BAA will let runners check in gear, in specia;, approved bags, on the Boston Common the morning of the race. Also banned, backpacks, suitcases and rolling bags, strollers, personal hydration systems like camelbaks, costumes and large props. "One wants to have measures imposed that runners, spectators, workers can see so that they know the security they depend on will be there," says Tom Grilk of the Boston Athletic Association. new regulations aren't just for runners. The police commission says marathon watchers with big bags will be subject to searches. "We know it's intrusive but unfortunately in this day and age its a necessary evil," says Boston Police Commissioner William Evans. But on race day, runners like Gibson say nothing comes between them and the road. "I think it will definitely be received well, obviously a few bothered by it at the beginning of the race, a couple miles in it's not going to be on their mind," he says, adding, "be thinking about the race and that'll be it." The Boston Marathon will be held on April 21.
