Expo time! Racer Ready?
I'm trying to stay hopeful, but I'm a little worried. The current forecast for the race is not good and not the usual Blistering-hot-at-the-start kind of not good. Right now it's 100% chance of rain including a flash flood warning. The thunderstorms should be holding off until the afternoon, so we should be able to get the race in, but this maybe more of a swim than a run. I've had some very rainy races in the past (the monsoon at Flying Pig and crazy pop-up storm at Silver Comet in '09), so I know what I am in for. I've pulled a few running tips for rainy days and I'm sure I will have somethings to add after thursday.
Inspirational mini bibs. What would you write?I've got my fingers crossed, am praying to the weather gods, and am hoping the worst of the rain shows up in the afternoon. If not, I may have to rethink my outfit. I planned for the usual super hot race, but I can run in swim goggles and some floaties, right? I'm going to be out there so I might as well have fun with it!
