I am totally a wimp when it comes to cold weather.
As a Florida native, I break out the sweaters and scarves when the temperatures drop into the low 60s. You think I’m kidding.
We have had really warm weather here lately, and I even remember being concerned last weekend about how warm it would be for the half marathon. Well, not anymore. As of right now, here is the forecast for tomorrow:
While I’m not really concerned about running in that weather (it will probably feel nice actually!), my big concern is what to wear.
Such a typical girl, right?
It’s still in the 60s here today so it is hard to imagine it will be that cold tomorrow morning. But I’m trying to plan ahead.
My last race, the St Pete Beach Classic 10k had 40 degree weather when we started and this is what I wore:
But as you can tell from my pushed up sleeves, I got pretty warm around mile four and started wishing I could take off my jacket.
I had been planning to wear the same thing I wore on my last long run for the race tomorrow:
But if the “feels like” temperate is 35 degrees, I’m afraid I’ll be FREEZING.
I’m playing with the idea of wearing “throw away” clothing – but I’m trying to make sure it’s something I wouldn’t mind wearing for the whole race in case I am cold.
Ahh…too many choices!
If you run in cold weather, please help this Florida girl out…
What should I wear for my race tomorrow?!?!?
