Weather girl

I am never more obsessed with weather than the week before a race. Yes, I start a week out, which this year MS thought I was nuts, but I need to plan. I need to look ahead and see if I'm going to have to bring long sleeves or short, tights or shorts, sunglasses or no. It's just the way I'm wired. I have to plan this out. I have my checklist and on it is "weather".

So for the last several days I've been on weather.com more than I'd care to admit. I'm checking the weekend forecast for not only home but for the race location too. I'm checking the hour-by-hour reports. I'm checking the 10-day forecast. Hell, I even checked the monthly forecast initially. So far things look great for Sunday. I'm really excited for it!

Now, on to the rest of the checklist...at least for an hour or so until I can check the new hour-by-hour report.

I know that one.. checking the 10-day forecast before a race (or an upcoming BIG training run). And sometimes I get so worried that I'm checking the hour-by-hour forecast to see how things are shaping up for when I have to wake up, when I have to start, etc.
