5 easy miles around the parkway, mostly on grass, just to stay loose and focused for Sunday’s Half. Another cool day, it’s supposed to warm up a bit over the weekend. Driving there tomorrow and staying over.
It looks increasingly like rain for race day, ‘scattered thunderstorms,’ 50-60% chance (never sure what these % means). Doesn’t sound good, but I don’t know the Rochester area well, so not sure which areas will be hit the most. Much of the Half will be in and near the city, so let’s hope the rain stays mostly in the ‘burbs. Can’t do much about the weather, so will focus on the race. My cross/distance racing shoes, in which I can go sockless, should help a lot.
At least my son and his team will finally have decent weather for their race at an invitational on Saturday in Grand Island, NY. We’ll be pulling for each other.
