IMT Des Moines Marathon outfit

This is my outfit I'll be wearing for the IMT Des Moines Marathon on Sunday.

I love to let people on the street cheering for all the runners, know my name.  I think this will do it.  Don't you?  No pink hat this time.   Mentally, I have to go into this marathon with the mind set , that  I'm going to have fun  and enjoy every minute of it.  Even when it gets tough.  I'm not  predicting a time for when I will  finish.  I feel that would take some of the enjoyment out of running this marathon. For me it's not about beating a time, it's about just enjoying the moment.

The weather for Sunday is calling for High 65 F, 20% chance of showers .  It sounds like the showers will be north of us. YAHOO!  It going to be a great day for a Marathon.

             What are you wearing for your race this weekend?

Do you like to let people know your name when you are running a race?
