68 high and partly cloudy :)
Lets hope it stays that way! Well, getting rid of the clouds would be okay. But the temperature is perfect!
Going out to do my last run, a nice and easy 2 miler :D
There's still so much to do before leaving, and no time (especially since the next few nights I'm aiming for an early bedtime). Gotta do maps of the area, laminate my pacing chart, and get everything together.
I could really use people's opinions on my hydration system. Now, I've done all my training with my camelback, which is great. I love it :). However, the furthest aid station is only 4.5 miles. So, really, I only need 1-2 handhelds, and the backpack would take longer to fill. However, I like the ability the backpack has of carrying things, that the handhelds wouldn't have. But, the backpack is also heavy. So, my two ideas are,
1) Go with the hydration pack, as is
2) wear the pack without the water, so that I can use it for storage (only weighs 1.5 lbs empty), carry one handheld, and stick another in the pack for longer aid station periods
Just handhelds doesn't work because I wouldn't have a place for gus and such! I know there will be lots of food out, but I want to make sure I have fuel that works for me :)
Okay, vote in!
Thanks guys :D
2 days and a handful of hours away from the race!
