Woah Nelly….4 more days until Chicago! Speaking of Nelly…Chicago will be “Hot in Herre”. Last week the forecast called for a high of 63F, partly cloud with a 10% chance of rain. Today the forecast for Sunday is a high of 70F, mostly sunny and 0% chance of rain.
So if you are 7-14 days out from your marathon and the weather is A,B,C…it can very well change to X,Y,Z (for the good or the bad depending on your outlook). The temperature will definitely impact my race day outfit. This year I’ve narrowed it down to two and will likely choose one Saturday or Sunday (here is my New York post from last year).
Option 1 – Oiselle Singlet | Black Capris | Brooks Adrenalines GTS
Option 2 – Oiselle Gwen Tank | Black Capris | Brooks Adrenalines GTS
Last year I wore my Oiselle singlet for the New York City Marathon and it was perfect for that day (cool and windy) and easy for my friends/family to spot. Why is there an Option 2? I tend to overheat and I prefer racerback tanks for a little more ventilation in the back/shoulders. I’ve kept in mind that the race will be cool at the start and warm up at the end.
Here are my previous countdown posts:

I’m catching up on posts/comments from last week – I’m a little behind from this past weekend’s events.
Do you plan your outfit ahead of time? Or pick the morning of?
What do you typically wear for 70F?
