16 marathons over 8 years has taught me that you ALWAYS wear less on race day than you want to.
Here is a great article on the best temperature for a marathon! http://www.poweringmuscles.com/Sports-Science-11,Cold_Weather_Best_For_Marathon_Performance.html
Here is what I will be wearing on Sunday.
Saucony shorts and a sports bra. I’m bringing my hat if it gets cold (I doubt it will) and arm warmers for the same reason. I will wear cotton t-shirts at the start and take them off before I start running or in the first miles. On my arms will be my Garmin, my Road ID and my Endorphin Warrior *strength* training bracelet.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that MissLesleyRuns got me a cool Saucony hat like this one signed by Molly Huddle. In which case I’ll be wearing that instead of my Sparkly Soul Headband! Have I mentioned that Saucony has FREE shipping online right now for a limited time?
On my feet will be the Saucony Kinvara 2.
In an hour I’ll be leaving on our 7+ hour drive with my whole little family. This will be the first marathon I’ve run that they will all be there! I am blessed.
So so excited! If you are running what do you plan on wearing?
Good Luck to everyone racing this weekend!
