Hydrate and Use Common Sense Sunday
That's the word for Sunday's Bank of America Chicago Marathon. It won't be in the 80s, but it will be in the 70s with full sun. That's warm to hot, depending on who you are. On the open parts of the course, you will be doing a slow bake. Be prepared ahead of time with adequate hydration and don't forget that sunscreen. Temps should be in the high 50s at race time. Take it cautiously early and you'll get dividends later. It's one of the world's great marathons. Make it one of your great marathon days. Good luck!
