I am excited to run this race but it is supposed to be rainy and possibly snowy. I have been wearing tights and base layers with adequate warm layer over them but wondering what I should wear on top to stay dry without over heating now? I dont want to get too hot and I do not want to underestimate the weather. Any advice will help!
don`t go crazy with the top layers - I usually find even the colest weather a thin long sleeve wicking shirt and thick fleece jacket is more than enough - throw a water proof wind breaker over the top if you want a dry layer - I like to have zippers on the jacket and fleece so I can open then during the race if necessary - but for 5 miles - as it`s a shorter distance and it won`t take that long to run I wouldn`t bther with a wind breaker but I would check a dry fleece to change into after the race
Good Luck !!!

Thank so much...I just haven't run in this kind of weather even in training. It has been a brutal winter here in Wisconsin so most of my running has been inside on tm. I am worried about getting wet and cold...thank you for the info...I will take the wind breaker and if I get too hot I can tie it around my waist I am sure. Thanks again!
Hopefully...the weather guy will be wrong and it will all be for not!
