VERY small community event. This was basically a training run for me. Was looking for 1:55-2:00 and came in at the slow end of that range. Temps popped way up today, and a lot of us struggled to perform in the heat. Two weeks ago, it was still winter with snow on the ground, and I hadn't been outside to run. Now it's suddenly summer with no opportunity for the body to adjust. Took plenty of liquids and gels out with me in a fanny pack, and slurped and sucked my way through everything I had. Hard to keep my pulse down on the back half, and I mixed a little walking into the last three miles.
What would you do differently?:

Can't control the weather. Two years ago, they raced in the snow. Anyway, have to start putting miles in, so nothing to do but go out and sweat and suffer a bit.
