A steady wind-driven rain kept the numbers down at the 12th running of the United Technologies Greater Hartford Marathon Saturday morning, but the various events still attracted more than 5,000 runners. In photo, using three umbrellas to shield them from the driving rain, Tiffin True of Simsbury, center, cheers for marathon runners approaching the finish line along with her daughters, Gillian Forsberg, 4, left, and Harper Forsberg, 10, right. Gillian was less excited about being out in the rain, but they were all waiting for Tiffin's father to pass by as he finished the half-marathon.
