Talk about cool running! This past weekend a total of 55,000 runners braved freezing conditions including sleet to take part in the disney Marathon weekend. Saturday morning broke with a light drizzle that soon turned into sleet and flurries with temps in the low 30s. Sunday was even colder but without the precipitation. My preparation for the marathon was fine and I felt ready except that I have never run in sustained 20 degree tempuratures. I finished wearing all 4 of my tech shirts along with a knit cap,2 pairs of gloves,tights and hand warmers! There were many Sarasota runners who braved the elements along with me and congrats to all of you for persevering. Next race for me is the ING Miami Marathon the last Sunday in January. Lets hope the weather is more cooperative.
