The current forecast calls for 80 degrees and thunderstoms. I'm not worried. Well, not all that much, I guess.
Rain? I've got some experience with that.
Heat? Well, considering a chunk of my mileage has been in conditions similar to this and this, perhaps I should be a bit concerned. Then again, 80 is a cold front compared to Chicago.
All this doesn't matter, really. I'm just really excited to run. I'll show up. (Hopefully everyone else involved with the marathon does, too.) I'll strap on my Coleman watch. (Hopefully the race organizers use a slightly more sophisticated timing system.) I'll run. I'll receive a huuuuuuuge hug from Ellie (who's running the half marathon) and my parents after I'm done. Then I'll be sure to let you all know how it went!
Thanks for all the support, guys! It's appreciated more than you know!
