So one starts out warm and enjoying the sun, then slowly runs into the dark while slightly frozen...lol. Perhaps I should run on the spot to stay warm while waiting at the finish.

RE: Weather Forecast for Race Day

I suspect if the daytime high is 64, temp at 8 pm would be in the low 50's, or upper 40's at worst - warm enough.

No appreciable change in the forecast at this time.

I have to laugh at the "gusts" at 9 and 12 mph! Don't blow away in that!

RE: Weather Forecast for Race Day

Since this is an annual tradition, I'll do my part like every year: that forecast is just the average for that time of year, it won't be even 50% accurate until the week of the race. There, did my part.

Gusts of 9? Around here we call anything less than 15 calm.

True Randy - Actually the forecasts don't mean too much until about 3 days out. That being said here's the latest. Even more calm! Starting to get a little too warm perhaps.
