Looking above, you can see the large area of high pressure sprawling across the majority of the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. Low pressure is beginning to develop in the Gulf at this point and will continue to head east into the day on Sunday. You can find Sunday’s marathon forecast here.

Recommendations:

Shorts and a t-shirt will be good for the race. Good luck out there and don’t forget your body glide!
