Two words - Soooooooooo HOT!!!! The temperature was around 83 for the race with major humidity, I definitely should have been drinking more fluids over the past couple days. I was hoping to do it under 30 minutes, but ended up at 30:05. Not bad considering the heat!
The crazy thing is that throughout the rest of the day my body was so weak, and that was just after a 5K! I knew it had nothing to do with the distance, it was total shock from the heat. That was a big lesson for me! The whole day consisted of sleeping, drinking, sleeping, sleeping,drinking! Finally by 5pm I was getting back to "normal"!
All in all, I'm so glad I did it! It was a great learning experience for sure!
Oh, also I ran it in my new Asics, I LOVE them!
