Today I went for another lunch run and just loved it! It was sunny and in the low 70’s and it was just perfect! I ran 4 miles with an easy pace of 9:16. I was visualizing the upcoming marathon and got excited and nervous at the same time. Taper is slowly making me crazy and I just want to be done with the marathon! 10 more days!
Speaking of the marathon, the weather stalking has officially started!
Last year the weather was bad, it was in the 40’s at the start and rain. I was freezing!! I had to wear 2 pair of gloves. Around mile 16 it stopped raining but it was still cold, by the time I was done it was still in the 50’s. The temperatures were great, just the rain really sucked. Last year they said, it was the first time it rained in 5 years.
Let’s hope this year will be better. The 10 day forecast only goes until Saturday (the day before the race). Good news: it won’t be hot, no heat wave in sight. Let’s just hope it won’t rain again.
I have updated my map with the states I have completed so far and it still looks so empty! Help me to fill my race calendar!
