Ran a Fourth of July 5K race this morning in a quaint country village nearby. Even though the race was at 8 a.m., the heat index was already over 100 degrees. I remembered to keep my head up and to breathe with control. My time was about 27 minutes--very good for me. And, I wasn't a wreck when finished. The only hard part of the race was that there was no water along the route. Even a water hose/sprinkler would have been welcome. Oh well, good fun. (There was water and bananas at the finish line.) Happy Independence Day.
