Well, you can't use the weather as an excuse for race times this year...it is going to be beautiful for the OKC Memorial Marathon!
6AM: 57 degrees, ENE 10 mph, mostly clear
8AM: 58 degrees, ENE 10 mph, mostly clear
10AM: 66 degrees, E 10 mph, partly cloudy
12PM: 72 degrees, E 10-15 mph, partly cloudy
For the second time, I have the honor of singing the National Anthem. You can hear it live on KFOR at 6:16am. You can also watch our live coverage of the Memorial Marathon at www.kfor.com/live! I will be racing the half marathon. I procrastinated a bit with my training but managed to get in 11 mile and 12 mile runs in the past few weeks. I know I will be able to get through it but I didn't put in the work for a PR, so I'm not expecting one. I will just try my best. The race crowds and energy really can create some magic!
Best of luck to all of the runners and a big THANKS to all of the volunteers. Make sure to thank the volunteers on the course when you can! See you tomorrow! Night!
