        Ooh, I didn't think they'd have wind guesstimations this early. Wow, those are about perfect race conditions! Shocked

          Yep, just about perfect. A little wind in our face, but for the first half. If you click on the individual day on weather.com's 10-Day, you get other details, including the wind. I've been keeping an eye on the wind, and the forecast has been fairly consistent at NW or N and between 5-7 mph. Click

              If this forecast sticks I think it will be a great day for everyone. So far it's not changed much over the past week. I'm not sure we could be in for better weather if we custom ordered it... Big grinCool

                On the topic of tweaking...so far I had been doing REALLY well during this taper...no injuries, sleeping well, feeling great, not moody, not freaking-out, dancing around the house, giggling at random, enjoying time to do stuff other than run run run, etc. Today it is really hitting me that the race is in less than THREE days!!! Shocked Plus this not running shit...yet I am still eating like I'm running 50 miles--and not good stuff. 2 boxes of GS cookies showed-up the other day and I polished off most of them single-handedly in less than 48 hours... Pbbbbb... Gah, I hate cellulite and how it looks in race photos. And I vowed I would weigh less for marathon #2...right now my weight is within a half pound of my weight for marathon #1...WTF?! Black eyeNo I should go take one of my kid's ritalin, maybe... Clowning around

                        Not sure how I feel about the rain thing...I've never run a 20 miler in the rain, much less 26.2. But as long as it's not super humid this may work to my advantage, since rain will clear all the crap out of the air that sets my asthma off. I will miss seeing the sun over the bay, though... I hope my kid tolerates standing in the rain for so long, too. At least they can go sit in the car if it gets too bad. It's MI...things could still do a complete 180 by race AM... Wink
