5k in a heatwave

Currently experiencing a mini-heatwave here in western NY, tomorrow’s forecast to be the hottest day of the year, probably hitting 90 with humidity and a 5k race.  Ran a very easy 6 miles (4 miles yesterday in the heat) just to get the legs going, lots of hydrating and sunscreen.

Not too fazed about running this 5k tomorrow, what are you gonna do, it’s summer and it gets hot.  Besides I love this race, a popular event, benefits the local Ronald McDonald House and has a great post-race party with some excellent locally brewed beer.  It’s just a few blocks from my place, so it’s quick jog to the starting line and a nice walk back home after the race.

What else…my son will run it with me again this year, and it’s the 2nd to last race before I turn 49…
