Ugh, the weather!

This Saturday is my first half marathon. I submitted my estimated finish time as 2:20, but was hoping to finish 10-15 minutes faster than that. I knew if I wanted to finish 10-15 minutes faster I would have to have great weather conditions for that day....below is the expected weather conditions for Saturday.....looks like it's not happening.

Anyway, my mother-in-law asked me about my pace for the run and what my strategy was. I haven't given it a ton of thought, but I want to beat 2:20. Anything slower than that and I'll be pretty disappointed in myself. It's my first half and so I set 2:20 because I know I can do it in that given the amount of runs I've missed and my nutrition has been garbage. I didn't want to set a goal too fast that I would be disappointed in myself. I mean seriously....not everyone can run 13.1 miles. Right?
