haha... it was depressingly hot and the heat/humidity started early
I ran the NYRR Queens leg of the 5 borough races today. Thank god they shortened the race to only a 10K it was a half marathon before.
the race started at 8am and it was already upper 80's at start and within 20min was in the 90's. I started to get a headache and a little queasy so I made a plan on the spot to walk miles 2 and 4.
I was out the whole day on saturday at Sandy Hook NJ with the wife and the dog and we were swimming/running around so much the whole day (from 9am to 4pm which was in the upper 90's even on the beach) I just got totally sapped of energy from the whole day (and the 1.5hr drives back and forth plus lugging all that beach crap back and forth ect ect)....
thankfully I finished without conking out... I still needed some energy to go out with the wife again afterwards (ended up walking another 4miles in Prospect park and brooklyn bridge park).
