And it's most likely going to be miserable.
And you will be cursing the day you signed up for what was supposed to be an 'easy' marathon.
If you're running CIM this weekend...
Remember: running is an OUTDOOR sport. Click that...yeah. Click it. And read it. It'll be good for you.
I'll bet you hate me now.
But... I will be there shouting and shrieking my little heart out in the hopes that it will spur you (yes, YOU) on to an amazing and transcendent experience. I will be like a
Here's the cheer gear so you'll know it's ME cheering for YOU...and we won't be random people passing each other in the rain...

Bad, dark photo...but I think you can see enough.
I know I look naked under the Hefty bag...but I'm not. And I won't be on Sunday either...so don't get your hopes up.
But seriously, does it look too much like The Grim Reaper? The last thing I want to look like on the sidelines of a marathon is Death!
Please know that I have run CIM in the pouring rain myself. 1997. A million years ago. I was freaking out leading up to the moment the gun went off...and then it was really fun. I'm not kidding. And I even did okay.
I'm rooting for all this weekend's runners who will be facing inclement weather...I wish each and every one of you a hearty bonne chance! That's fancy for "good luck." And understand that despite my little rant about running being an outdoor sport, my hat is off to all of you for braving the elements :)
*If you'd like some personal attention during Sunday's running of CIM, let me know in a comment. Tell me your # and give a ballpark range for estimated average pace and I'll see what I can do. Just remember that I am notorious for not seeing the people I'm intending to see...hence my really LOUD outfit...that way if I don't see you, at least you'll see me :) *
