The temperature yesterday set a record high for a Chicago Memorial Day, and my 10k was a hot one.
Fortunately, it's a neighborhood run, and the neighbors had extra water on the course - water in cups - and water in sprinklers arranged along the course so that you could run through sprinklers on a pretty regular basis.
The 10k took me an hour and four seconds! Three weeks ago I ran a 10k - went off course and ran a bit farther - and still finished 3 and a half minutes sooner than I did yesterday.
I didn't fall or stumble,
but heat has the power to humble.
