As of this morning the weather in Dallas doesn't look promising for Sunday morning. Depending on where you look, the low and feels like may differ, with Accuweather coming in at a feels like of 18deg (actual temp of 32).
Add to that: rain (freezing rain) Or as the email said last night from DWR directors, "lingering showers".
Let me just put it this way: If its that cold and there is rain, I'll be running 13.1 instead of 26.2. No ifs, ands or buts about it.
When I ran Sugarland (half) back in January in the wind, cold and rain, I almost DNF'd and even sat down on the side of the road and took my DTag off and tossed it. Didn't even run over the Finish line but rather ran around it. My legs just wouldnt work and everything felt weird. At the time I had no clue what was going on.
Granted I was not dressed properly but the weather hit unexpectedly and well, I guess I thought I could handle it.
Obviously I couldn't and ended up with a mild case of hypothermia.
I suppose if its just cold I will go through with the full marathon, so looks to be a race day decision. However, I am still perplexed on what the hell I am going to wear for those types of temps. I have never run more than a few miles in tights. And the tights I do have basically are way too baggy, so I would have to run in capri's I guess.
If I end up just doing the half marathon, I will have to reset for Houston, by running 20 next weekend and then 21 or so again on Christmas Eve as originally planned.
What a mess.
