Weather in Chicago

I love this town for several reason, today displaying one of my favorites...

It's been sticky and hot and stickier and hotter and swealtering and steaming and horrible in Chicago I would say the past month or so. I woke up this morning and my little weather widget came on with a '48' degrees outside. WHAT. You mean not 90? Wait..that means it probably won't get up to 90...and I was right. I walked down to a local coffee shop to get out of my apartment for a little bit (working at home is good..but you don't see anyone else especially now that the boy is all mr.ihaveadowntownjobandimreallyfancy and not home). And I walked in jeans and long sleeve shirt type thing....and was still a little chilly.

IT"S HERE!!!! FALL IS HERE!!!

Now, I just want to hold on to this weather for a little under 4 weeks and have a perfect race day.

Yesterday we did a 5 mile run with 6 strides thrown in during the last mile. Tonight we have a V02 Max workout 10 miles with 4x1200m@5K pace. I'm a little worried about it...but it shouldn't be too bad. I think that the longer the repeat the easier it is...not easy....but you get time to get your stride and your pace under control.

Alright, that's all from here. Time to walk back to my apartment.

I am really hoping for nice cool weather in Chicago after training thru this heat and humidity in Houston!

I'm in California and am now wondering what I will wear on race day. To me, 50 at the start & 60 at the finish would be perfect. Still, I'm up for some cooler weather.
