It's weather forecast stalking time

Five days out from the Green Bay Half Marathon. You know what that means? It's time to start stalking the weather forecast.

Yes. I started stalking it last week. But since it's getting closer, there's actually a chance the forecast might be right. And the forecast isn't too awful. Sure I'd like to see that "few showers" thing disappear, but it can't be worse than the wet stuff that fell from they sky during the Oshkosh Half Marathon last month. Right?

I'm not too worried though. It's only Tuesday. Race day is still five days away. The weathermen are never right that far in advance.


Speaking of weather. I got in an amazing 2 mile run (gotta love taper) tonight after work. And when I left at almost 6:30? The mercury in the thermometer was hovering around 67 degrees. I got home after my run and I was a sweaty, dripping mess. Love it! Although I'd be perfectly happy with the mid-50s for race day.

That - minus the rain - would be a perfect forecast, in my opinion. Good luck! Can't wait to hear how it goes!
