It was HOT HOT HOT…..note to self….NEVER enter a race that is in the 70s-80s…..
I was able to run my target pace for the first 21 miles then the the heat just engulfed my muscles and they started to slowly cook….by mile 25 I had to walk a few steps….but was able to finish in 4 hours and 7 minutes. Didn’t break my personal record of 4 hours but I’m sure there is a heat index calculation somewhere that would prove that I did if it was adjusted!! :-))
Onto the Vegas Half marathon in December – nice and cold and dry!
