Hi all, I am sitting in downtown Chicago trying to figure out just what I may have to wear Sunday, I thought for sure it would be sunny and cool. Now they are talking, 40 and rainy. Do you wear tights? I just don't want cold legs but sure don't want to warm. Hmmmm
Personally, I'd go with shorts. The legs usually keep themselves warm if you keep your core warm and I wouldn't want to haul around wet tights for a whole race. Of course, as with the winter gear topic, it's a personal call because everyone needs something different. I ran without a shirt last year and was about the only topless guy in the race while other people were wearing long sleeves and gloves.
I wish the best for those of you running in Chicago tomorrow. I ran a 5k today and it started raining pretty steady just minutes before the start of the race after just a light drizzle after that. If it weren't for the rain, it would have actually been pretty ideal conditions. Here's hoping you get those ideal conditions and it stays dry.
