If you feel you can, then go for it! On your next pre race run (maybe Thursday?) try holding that pace for 1.5 to 2 miles don't be afraid to push yourself even further.EdgarHF wrote:I think I will try to see if maintain that over the distance Saturday
Based on the current weather forecast, we are expecting a cold start to the race on Saturday morning. Temperatures at race time will likely be around freezing and then climbing into the 40's by the end of the event. Fortunately, the winds will be calming and the day should be sunny.
While you may be quite comfortable while running, please dress appropriately for these cooler conditions. After the race, there is still the post-race party to enjoy and it is important to have dry, warm clothes to change into. Please make use of the gear check at the start/finish area.
Warming stations will be available along the racecourse. School buses will be staged by 39th Street and McCormick Place will be open if you find yourself too cold to continue. Runner pick-up services can help you return to Grant Park. We will also have re-warming facilities at Grant Park for emergencies.

Exactly how every runner feels I think. Just think of it like...this is just the next 30 minutes of my life - I can do this!EdgarHF wrote:I have done three 5K races I know what to expect and that is to suffer for about a half hour and then great about myself as long I know I put out 100 percent.
