Easy jog this morning with some fast striders. Saw that the humidity is up at 50%. Not so good for the race tomorrow.

oooooohhhh, 50% - how WILL you survive?!

Can't wait to hear the triumphant report of you helping Bret crush 3 hours. Don't forget to pay attention to yourself... sub 3 hrs aint no walk in the park. All the best wishes to you guys tomorrow. I'd say I wish I could be there running with you, but I hate to lie on Sundays.
