My thanks to Penn Relays Director Dave Johnson and his staff, as well as Tim Hickey, Jack Pfeifer, Jim Spier, and Dyestat.com and milesplit.com for their help in putting together this preview. Please send any corrections or suggestions---they will be included in an updated e-version that will be sent before the Relays begin.

But all seems to be good this year, with the promise of temperatures steadily increasing from a high of 65 on Thursday to 74 on Saturday, with a chance of some showers on Friday.
