After melting in near-90-degree heat at the GW Parkway Ten Miler this weekend, where I ran a disappointing 1:26:10, I couldn’t help but start obsessing about the forecast for this Sunday, when I’m running the Broad Street Ten Miler with Jen, my best friend and training buddy.
I’m happy to share the good news from the National Weather Service: Mostly sunny, with a high near 66. Whew! I’m looking forward to the race all the more.
Also, I looked up the elevation profile (I’m seriously going to stop procrastinating after this post. For reals.), and learned that this race is, in fact, mostly downhill — especially the last half. I’d hoped to take it easy this weekend after a stellar performance last Sunday, but it might be the other way around.
