Let me just tell you about the weather in Missouri the past few weeks. The weekend following St. Patrick's Day we enjoyed temps well into the eighties. I busted out my Nike Tempo shorts and T-shirt for a few days of yard work, dog walks, and front-porch sittin'. This past weekend was the total opposite. We actually saw snow ACCUMULATE on the ground!!! I even wore my winter coat to work today!!!
I have no idea what to expect on April 10th. Last year at the STL race runners sweated it out in eighty-degree temperatures, and a year or two prior, protected themselves from falling sleet! A consistent Missouri spring is never the norm.
Right now on Accuweather.com, a nice sunny day with temps starting in the high-forties and floating up to the upper-sixties. Perfect, right? Maybe it would be perfect, if I could believe it. Just this morning, the same website predicted clouds and low sixties for the same date. UGH!!! I know it is too far out to worry, but I don't want heat. Until race day, I will be stalking the weather predictions.
After training in ice, snow, and wind chills below zero, I would appreciate a moderately-temperatured day. Forty-five to fifty degrees sounds just right. Please...
