Rule of thumb: If you feel cold at the start line, you're not overdressed. If you'll be standing at the start for more than 10-15 minutes, wear something warm and disposable( take off and throw away 5 minutes before the start).
Thanks HC,
I figured I would just tough it out since the race started Downtown in the shadows of the tall office buildings. The course headed towards the east into the Sun and I figured I would be warmed up by the 2nd or 3rd mile.
It was a fun race, definitely alot more "mental" planning and trying to keep a decent pace without pushing too hard. I did have enough energy to speed up to sprint in the last 1/4 mile or so to the the finish- that felt awesome.
Kinda blew me away at the Men's 1st place finishers time, 47:34- that's flyin'!
