I ran the Leprechaun Chase 10K on Saturday afternoon and it was almost 70 degrees at the start of the race. It hasn't been that warm all year so far-and it hasn't been that warm since (though it HAS only been two days).

I have gone the past four days staying up until midnight at the earliest (closer to 1:30am the past two nights just trying to wrap gifts).
