So imagine my surprise after my last 20 miler, when I bopped on to accuweather, three weeks out from Madison to find that the extended forecast NOW RAN FOR 45 DAYS OUT. Whoa. This adds a whole new element of crazy to marathon training.
Race day, and the 2+/- days before/after it all look perfect. AND, most importantly (or perhaps just equally as important?) is that there are no major blizzards/ice storms leading up to race day, as I'm driving to Madison. Phew! Bring on the excessive race day weather stalking!
