Very excited here too!

Did the Army Ten Miler yesterday. Despite PRing, the bib B-Tag didnt catch my time defaulting to the gun time :\

Hope the weather this weekend will be as nice as this past weekend.

 

P.S. Anyone ever try these before? Tried it yesterday (also twice on training runs of course), no overwhelming flavor/taste to them and the tiny chia seeds are interesting.

Chia Surge

Learned that I have a stress fracture in my left foot and that's what has been bothering me.  The ortho said I could still do the marathon as long as I could deal with the pain.

So it should be interesting...I'm so undertrained for it.  Oh well.

I'll be in the 3:45 pace group in the famous TNT purple! 

What is everyones time groups for this?

WOW - Stress fracture - Guess I won't complain about my chronic Plantar fasciitis - just going for 4:15 pace group.  

Keep checking weather.com for updates on Sandy -- this could get interesting!!

I'm going to line up with the "just finish" pace group... I don't think they have any signs or balloons though, so it may be tough finding them.

Weather will/could be interesting.  I'm hoping for a slower-than-predicted moving storm.  As of this AM it was projecting to be in the NC/VA border area on Sunday... if it moves a bit slower we may dodge a bullet.

With the 15 mph winds out of the North how does that effect the course?

Hey me too! I'll be hovering around that group. I don't want to actually be IN the group though. I'll be dressed/colored like a neon bumblebee! Black and yellow.

Good luck to everyone, I'm starting to see the start line towers, Pentagon and Crystal City signage pop up. Finisher area looked like it was being popped up yesterday afternoon.

I'm not a local to DC, but know the weather patterns for this part of the country.  Looking at the course, in general, it looks like a big chunk of the running will be Northwest to Southeast.

So with winds out of the north, while running the majority of the course, half will be right-quarter headwind, half will be left-quarter tailwind.  The rest would be cross-winds.

Mile 7-8 range is the last climb, and starting around mile 7 we'll be turning downwind (tailwind)

Mile 23 to finish may be in a headwind, as that part of the course runs to the Northwest.

Looking at Accuweather.com, their hourly forecast for Sunday doesn't call for any rain until 2:00 PM, and it's a 9% chance. 

So this mess may not be a factor, until we're driving/flying home.
