Day 45 Rt 66 Challenge: Changes in Attire
Thursday, November 21, 2013
Due to the predicted weather in Tulsa, I have had to make a few adjustments to my choice of race day apparel. Last week when I looked at the weather it said that there would be a low of 32 and a high of 42 with no chance of precipitation. I called my sister in law and asked her if she could mail me one of her Under Armour Cold Gear shirts (she used to live and run in Michigan) so that I could use that as my base layer for the half marathon. She of course did and they arrived yesterday!
Today as I was looking at the weather, it has now changed to a low of 32, a high of 38 with a 50% chance of a Light Wintery Mix. EEK! This prompted a trip to REI for a new earwarmer headband and some Smartwool socks to round out my outfit!
This is definitely going to be an interesting race and I am hoping that I can still pull a good time. I am prepared physically for this distance, I just haven’t ran in this type of weather (EVER!). I would appreciate prayers for our travels tomorrow and during the race on Sunday for both me and everybody else that is racing! I do know that no matter what my time is, I will be getting one of these!
