An Epic Fail

What was I thinking?

I sorely miscalculated the weather here in Okie-loma for race day. Forecast is 55 and rain. Great. I packed for 70 and sunny. Epic fail.

I'm posting on my iPhone so this will be short. I just wanted to check in and say Hi!

Who is running OKC?

  2. Yikes!!! Sounds like when we went to Disney and it was only a few degrees above freezing, meanwhile we brought shorts & tanks! I have never seen so many people run an entire marathon wearing throwaway sweats.

    Hope the weather improves for you! Meanwhile, send me that 55 & rain. :)

  7. Good luck to you. Maybe buy some gear at the expo. I just saw that Adam from I Am Boring is in OKC. I wish I could be there to meet up since I'm only 2 hours away, but I'll be running a 1/2 mary up here myself that day.

  9. I will be at the 16 mile marker cheering and taking pictures. Are you doing the full or the half? If you are doing the full I'll look for you...but I seem to remember you are doing the half this year. Good luck and have fun!!

  14. Oh man, good luck! Maybe if you run really hard you can get a great PR and be warm enough. :)

  15. Ran it. My feet are still prunes, and it's been 6 hours. And my teeth are still chattering. And I slipped at mile 5 and landed on my trashbag covered rump.. so I basically created my own little slip and slide. But it was awesome! Hahaha! How'd you do?
