In keeping with my custom of running marathons in the warmest possible conditions, Iâ€™m off to Huntsville, Alabama for the Rocket City Marathon this weekend. The projected high will be 70 degrees. Excellent.
For the record, this year I have run one of the warmest Black Mountain Marathons on record, the warmest Steamtown Marathon ever (on the same day as the infamously sweltering, water-depleted Chicago Marathon), a warmish New York City Marathon (I finished shirtless in November), and now Rocket City.
A word to the wise: If you are interested in a race, and find out Iâ€™ll be running as well, donâ€™t bother to pack your mittens.
Anyway, this is my 10th marathon, and an official Boston AttemptÂ®.
Bring it on!
