Right now, Weather.com is saying there’s a 30% chance we’ll see precipitation tomorrow morning. That’s the start time for the Long Beach Snowflake race. On top of that, the wind chill will make it feel like 32 degrees outside. Last year conditions were similarly miserable. Despite the weather, I still had a great race.
I’ve rested the past couple of days and trained fairly hard during the week. I have no real expectations for tomorrow, except that I’ll do my best to be competitive. This will be the first time I’ll race since last October, so I’m excited to be back in the game. I’m hoping all goes smoothly and that the odds stay in our favor, as running in the cold and rain isn’t a great way to spend a Saturday morning. We can control many things in life, but there’s not much we can do about the weather.
