Weather Tips!

With a current projected high of around 60 and a low of 36, we’re looking at a chilly start, but a great temp to keep moving in! Some key advice is not over dressing due to the chilly start. Light layers will be the way to go!  Also remember, no new clothes on event day. You don’t want to chafe in unexpected places or suddenly find out those new socks bunch in your shoes! So far there’s no rain or snow in the forecast, so hooray for that!

You can also wear older workout clothes you want to donate as top layers to stay warm on the starting line, and ditch them once you start. Sole Sisters collects them and repurposes them! Remember though, anything ditched at the start line will be collected so you will not be able to get it back. Another tactic: have your cheering squad situated on the course and have them ready to take layers you intend to shed.
