Race Day Forecast

I'm guessing I'm not the only one who semi-obsesses over the weather in the days leading up to a race. So far the forecast for Saturday (4 days from now) is calling for a high of 36º F and partly cloudy skies. That 9:30 start could be kinda chilly if the high is only to get into the mid-30s...I'm just hoping that it's not too windy. Man, this Spring is taking forever to arrive. I shouldn't have to be thinking in terms of layers for a race in the last half of March...

It will still beat the Hell-on-Earth inferno-like weather they had in Chicago for the marathon last year, though. I'm doing Milwaukee, which is the same day. Hopefully the temps will be more seasonable in '08 than they were in '07.


  1. Good luck on the race this weekend girl! How far is it?

    Ready for the warm weather to return too. It's time for this old fashioned winter to hit the bricks!

  2. Thanks! It's a 15k, so 9.3 miles. I just hope I feel a little less under the weather. I'm battling what is probably mold allergies kicking in. As much as I love the warmer weather we have had, all the exposed dead leaves and dirt and stuff has activated mold. Bah.

  3. Good luck with your race. Cold is definitely better than hot for racing. Give our weather here I tend to obsess over the wind forecast for a week before any major race!

    Race well - I'm looking forward to hearing all about it.

  4. Thanks! Oh, yeah...wind...ick! Now the forecast is for snow all day tomorrow...sheesh, today's the first day of SPRING, fer pete's sake!
