Has a half in a week, and growing fear on my original goal of PR. Maybe I should back off a minute or two or three which would still give me a sub 3 in December. Hmmmm...

It's way too far out for a forecast to be anywhere near accurate. Heck, the evening before I ran Cape Cod, they were forecasting snow, rain and gusts up to 60 mph! It didn't snow or rain, and the gusts never got worse than about 40 mph!

NWS forecast for Sunday in DC:

Sunday Mostly sunny, with a high near 58. West wind 6 to 9 mph.

Although it'll be chilly in the chute for the start, I'm perfectly happy with that!!!

If you haven't already made your payment to the Weather gods for good weather, then you're SOL.

The payment website is not working. Sorry, all the resources have been directed to fix ObamaCare one.

I'm looking at a low of 65 and a high of 79 with a 1/4" of rain on Sunday, for me.  Good thing I'm not going for a PR.
