Merciless sun

That's what I'm expecting now for Saturday's marathon! The forecasts have all gone south, so to speak, now that we're within the 48-hour range. The moribund stationary front that we've had all week is moving on, and leaving us with an Indian Summer day on Saturday, it seems. Just right for a scorching marathon!

Weatherbug says:
Mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.

Intellicast says:
Mainly sunny. Highs in the mid 70s and lows in the upper 40s.

Wunderground says:
8AM: 57 degrees, 74% humidity, wind 5 mph, 10% chance of precipitation, 31% cloud cover.
11AM: 70 degrees, 42% humidity, wind 11 mph, 10% chance of precipitation, 35% cloud cover.
2PM: 77 degrees, 28% humidity, wind 15 mph, 10% chance of precipitation, 39% cloud cover.

Oh well, it is what it is! Anything but rain is fine!! I'll pack the sleeveless top and the sunblock!

Actually - and strangely enough - I just realized that this is perhaps my first marathon that I'm looking forward to rather than dreading! On to Marathon Number Seven!

Ok, 77 is a tad steamy, but you have low humidity and a nice breeze... That should help things a bit. You should look forward to it-- You're going to ROCK!

If the start is early, it should make for a good run. How great to have a race to look forward to, have a great run!

Temps look good to this gal in the Steamy South. Cloudy is always nice it you can get it, though. Well, just think of all that good Vitamin D you'll be soaking up!

You'll have a great time out there!

Maybe 7 is a lucky number for you. 77 degrees, 7th race...

I'm so glad you're feeling well-trained for this one. Enjoy the sunshine for me!
