Fitness Friday: weatherstalking

I leave for Jacksonville in exactly 1 week *SQUEEE* which means the Jax Bank Half is in 9 days. Close enough that I can legitimately start weather stalking.

The weather for driving to Chicago & flying out looks promising so far. (Knock on wood, fingers crossed)







And while Jacksonville doesn't have exactly the best beach forecast, it's looking pretty decent for running a half marathon on Sunday. Plus I probably don't have to worry about my shorts not fitting.






I'm guessing the temps will be around 50 at race time, which is on the border for sleeves or no sleeves. I'm leaning towards a tank top & skirt combo with the expectation my arms will stay cold. Multiple options will be packed though (thank you Southwest for 2 free checked bags - I might need them both).

One more long run tomorrow to put my Mizuno Wave Elixir 8s through their final test & then it's taper time!

How early do you weather stalk for races?
