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
At least I can now opt for capri tights. ;D

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.

I keep thinking geez I am from Wisconsin and have jumped in Lake Superior when the air temp is 45 degrees!
I will go with shorts. I just can't imagine doing a marathon in tights.
I am a little overwhelmed by how huge this is. How great running is that anyone can “compete” with world class athletes.
Now back to watching the weather channel. 😉
