Despair, then joy

Yeah, so I took a look at the stupid long range forecast yesterday and it was not pretty.


It called for rain on the 28th. I hate rain and running. Drizzle, sure. Light rain, for training runs, okay. Rain for race day, ugh. It's the one factor you can't control. Even worse than rain was it showed perfect, enticing sunny days before and after marathon day.

Then of course I went this morning to check on my misery and see this!

The skies had opened and sun!

Anyways, i'm not going to jinx myself any more. Things will change as these stupid weather systems are apt to. I think Thursday will be the day i'll truly freak or jump for joy.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that the weather will be on your side! I hope you are havng a good taper!

i always like when it switches between rain and then sunny and then back, it means that the weatherman isn't sure and that it will probably be overcast which is the one thing that I really like to race in. Looks like you're all geared up to go!

i'll be great. For real. We can't control weather so don't think about it.

Wow, I sound like a hypocrite. I've been checking weather since you could possibly check it.

:) 5 more sleeps!!!

That's taper madness to its best: freakin out about the weather lol

Don't worry, they are ALWAYS wrong!!! Seriously, it is going to be a great day! Have some little faith in me (and you can blame me later on if it is pouring! LOL)

Back to despair! The long range forecast keeps changing and now is a bit worrisome. A high of 18 with a low of 11 is spectacular. One millimetre of rain is no big deal. A north wind of 35K is not good at all. That will make exiting the Spit pretty tough and since east in Toronto is really northeast, a fairly large chunk of the race could be tough. There are still five more days and the forecast can change again.
