Carmel, IN marathon anyone (Read 1022 times)

    I am sure we can hook you up with something hot and alcholic to drink.

     

     

     

    Besides my inherent heat generation problems, basal temp regulation is one thing that can shut down when energy stores get low.  Last time I ran in the 30s in rain I ended up dangerously hypothermic by the end...a smarter person would have dropped but I was 2OA so I gutted a 2:36.  I was past clothes helping, it took 3 hours and lots of hot fluids to get my body temp back to a safe point.

     

    Hopefully this time I will be smart enough to dress right if the weather requires (that race the front that came through...huge temp drop and rain...was not really predicted ahead of time).

    Imminent Catastrophe

       

      And, hey, if there's Beer and a BBQ afterwards, that's just gravy! 

       

      Well, if there's beer and BBQ, I'm in!

      Weather looks good, 40's and overcast.

      Flatfooter, I'm doing IA50 too.

        Forecast for race day is low 40's at the start and low 50's by noon. You guys should be good to go.

        2014 Goal: A Fall race TBD.

          I'm happy about the weather. But if there's anything to complain about (and why not), it's that 14 MPH wind out of the North. It appears though that the majority of the course runs e/w and not n/s.   I guess if I wanted perfect conditions, I'd run indoors all the time :-)

            I am 6'3 and 210# - I catch air like a sail + I get very little from drafting off you GD skinny runners.

             

            But I will take hypothermia over heat exhaustion any day.

              With the way the wind has been here lately that's actually pretty calm. I don't think it will be too bad.

               

              Good luck to everyone tomorrow!

                  Complaints about the weather? Talk to the Boston runners a bit.

                      Thanks - You get what you get on race day ~ But I am happy to be running a marathon tomorrow.  I am looking forward to the mental and physical stress, the pre-race excitement, the early race patience, the mid-race fight to keep steady and late race ramping up of physical and mental effort to maximum.  I love the distance - The process - But mainly I revel in the last 6.2. 

                       

                      Good luck, folks.

                        Feeling the growl again

                          I just did my warmup.  I'll probably find a way to muck it up, but honestly I am better-prepared and feeling better than I did going into my last 3 marathons.

                            Good luck all! 

                             

                            BoilerTom - I didn't see you post goal on the sub 3 thread, but based on your PRs, I'm guessing you are going for at least sub-3.  Any particular time goal you are trying to beat?

                              BBQ supplies procured. I know some who are joining are planning to bring side items which will be greatly appreciated and copiously consumed. Cold front just hit here and temps are already in the 50s and sinking.

                               

                              It will be pretty funny to be running with my peeling Boston obtained sunburn tomorrow morning with temps in the 40's. What a wild week.

                                If you see Leah Thorvilson offer her a beer Smile She won the Hogeye marathon last weekend, but since she's driving all the way from Little Rock, AR I assume she's looking to win tomorrow too. She's my hometown favorite and one awesome gal!
