Whew! What a busy week. I didn't blog as much and comment as much since I'm settling into a new job and a new routine. Right now I'm working 8:30 to 5, and I used to start work at 7:15 for years! It's quite a change, and I was exhausted most days when I got home from work. Thank goodness this was taper. I only managed 1 mile on Tuesday, and 1.5 miles on Wednesday when I felt less tired.
Speaking of which, I've been watching the weather forecast, and it's been all over. I'll own the Goldilocks label of runners. I want my weather to be just right. I started pulling up the forecast on Tuesday and saw a chance of rain and mid-40s. Wednesday had the forecast at a steady light rain and mid-40s, then changed it to t-storms starting in the morning. Thursday it was showing cloudy with t-storms in the afternoon. I'll decide what to wear and how to proceed Saturday. I don't mind t-storms in the afternoon Sunday, as long as I can get my race done in dry conditions!
A super good luck to all Chicago runners, and a special shout out to Kathryn!
