As my last big run of this training cycle approaches I am hit with two things. First and foremost, I have a cold! My second one of the fall season already. How crappy is that? It started yesterday while I was at work. I just felt off. You know the feeling. Then slowly it turned into a headache and then a sore throat. Now my throat hurts pretty good and my nose is a little stuffy and I'm hoping to get away with a little one. Now that I actually put that in black and white, I jinxed myself and it's sure to be a big one. If you see me at FCM and I'm blowing snot rockets, don't get to close behind me. I'm sorry in advance.
And then there is this cold:
It has been so long I don't even know what to do with that. I forgot how to dress. Lish and I will be starting at 5am that morning so I'm pretty sure it will be about 40 degrees when we start. Brr but great at the same time. I think this is similar weather to the Oshkosh half I did in April so I plan to dress similarly.
Tonight I can go pick up my bib at the expo so this is becoming more real! My last long training run is right in front of me!
How would you dress in 40 degree weather for a long run?
