Marathon taper: the final days

Today I just wanted to go out for a 30-minute run. Ended up running a little faster than I intended to (7:23 pace). My legs are really fresh right now and I can't wait for marathon day to get here. I snuck a peek at the weather forecast for the first time and Sunday morning may be a little warm: mid 50s in the morning and a high of 70, lots of wind.

That's not ideal marathon weather, but if its as warm as they say its going to be, that takes some of the pressure off of me.
I know I'll have to run slower at the beginning, so I'll be less concerned about time and this will help me enjoy my surroundings a little more. It's a big party at the White Rock Marathon, so I might as well have fun, right?
Also, the warm weather means I can wear shorts and a t-shirt which is my favorite running apparel. I hate gloves and long sleeve shirts and wool caps. It means I won't be freezing at the start of the race.

S0, with the heat, I may not make my time of 3:30, but 3:35 to 3:45 is totally doable and it would still be 100 minutes faster than the marathon I ran in 2007.

Best of luck, though I doubt you'll need it - sounds like you're peaking at just the right time.

Whatever you run is going to be great. Of this I am certain.

I can't think of any really good advice. So think of some smart marathon tips, and imagine I'm writing it here," ."
Good luck!
