Hi this Sunday is going to be my first marathon and I would appreciate advice from experienced runners and am a tad worried about torrential rain. I have trained in both leggings and shorts in snow and heat but have somehow managed to avoid torrential rain (apart from one miserable occasion resulting in me stopping) and am not sure which will cause less friction.
I also got my name printed on my vest ( rather optimistically) as I have a tendency to get cold. I don't have any long-sleeved tee-shirts so cannot wear anything under vest, but tend wear a light long sleeved fitted jacket/ top which I wear over the top which is pretty good in coldish conditions but also breathable. My problem with wearing it is that I don't have my name on it so won't get support sometimes it does become a bit of a nuisance and I am also unsure if when it is wet it will get cold and really uncomfortable.
I was wondering if I started with jacket on and then took it of later. The only problem is then how do I change my race number from outer to inner layer. Thanks for the advice
