- It's important to be prepared for anything on race day. It would be nice if we had 50 and sunny every time but that's just not the way it works. I along with many of you have shown up on race day when perfect weather has turned nasty, from 100 degree temperatures to 33 degrees and raining sideways. It will be much easier to deal with it mentally if you have been there before and have the proper gear.
- I have had some of my most epic runs in rough weather. These include planned runs during the year's first snow to getting caught by surprise in nasty thunder storms. Sometimes it's worth taking the chance just to create a great memory.
- I actually find that running in adverse condition, cold, heat, snow and rain builds confidence. If I can run in this stuff, I can run in anything.
