I will not check the weather... I will not check the weather...
Runner's World reported that athletes who were not told the temperature performed better in the heat than those who knew the actual figure.
There goes that advantage. Sunday's weather has gone from hot to dangerous. Starting a race at nearly 80F is going to be a challenge. Ending it at 95F is insane. I'm pulled between slowing down like an invalid, or boosting my speed just a little to get the dang thing over with. Obviously the correct answer is slowing down, walking through EVERY water station, and hydrating like a crazy person in the next 3 days.
