Once again (for the second time in just over a week) I had to battle the heat during my run. I just went out for an easy 5 miler. But the temperature was 29 degrees C. (85 degrees F) and it was muggy. For the first 3 miles, my run was good. But as soon as I headed east with the wind at my back, I could feel myself overheating and I felt just like I did when I was at the 22 mile mark in Corning. I had a flashback and everything!
I finished the run in the desired time and at the desired pace, which was great. But I really, really know now that I just wasn't meant to run when I'm hot.
So the weather on the day of that Niagara Casino Marathon better bloody-well be cool!
