bad, it is a beautiful day as long as you keep moving. very early this morning before the sun was even up we caught up with the people setting up for this race and they say it has been a chilly start to the day. >> it is cold. but it ain't too bad. the wind is not too bad. >> reporter: how long have you been out here? >> since 3:00 a.m., yeah. the wind is saving us right now. >> how many breaks have we had? >> none. they work us hard. no. >> reporter: at least you're smiling about it. >> yeah. they take care of us. >> just for fun, something we do together. stay in shape. >> reporter: did you think it would be warmer? >> absolutely, yeah. thought middle april, it would be above freezing. >> reporter: does that make this morning -- now, neil davis, a runner from bensalem, they thought it would be a little difficult with all the layers. many runs were shedding layers,
