so… the hay is in the barn. But… it seems like the barn is about to be set on fire. The forecast for my Sunday marathon has been saying this –>
80s is too hot for me. heck, 70s is too hot for me. I did a 10 miler two weeks ago and I melted.
I am not into doing a marathon just to finish anymore. It’ll leave me exhausted for days, my running will suck for weeks, and I might even get sick. NO. On the other hand, marathons are 100% unpredictable and that is the whole point. I have done well in awful weather and circumstances before. I’ve also melted into a pool of gel… It’s not even about the weather sometimes. It’s about how you deal with the obstacles. Every marathon has a curveball or 5.
Should I take a chance and risk it on something that I know can be a hot mess of unpredictability? Or is it safe to assume it’ll go bad and why bother?
Some decisions need to be made today before 4 pm which is when I’ll be packing.
