Got to the race a little early, it was really foggy, so I figured the race conditions would be ideal, the fog kept it cool and calm. However, 20 minutes before there race the sun had burned off the fog and it got HOT. According to the results, the actual temp at race time was already 70 and the humidity was 97%, so the heat index could have been nearing 80 at just 8 am. I definitely felt it on the run as Im sure everyone did. The heat and humidity cost me probably 20-25 seconds on today's effort. Ran a nice first mile 5:22, I need to keep that pace throughout though, and just didnt do so today. 5:57 second mile, may have been long. 5:47 final mile, with 30 seconds closing the final .1, which clearly was a tad short so one or both of the final 2 mile markers were a little long. According to my watch I clocked 17:38, they had me officially at 17:40, so for the sake of this report, I split the difference and gave myself credit for 17:39! haha. 

Im not super thrilled with my race today, I just think I let up that 2nd mile, I need to train harder for that. Probably doing some drop down repeats to simulate an easier first mile followed by a hard 2nd mile. Im sure my times will start dropping later. One thing I can take from this race was that I had a nice kick and actually outsprinted a guy at the end to get 5th. Next race is on Tuesday, so a short turnaround awaits.
