This run was really hard for me, I think it may have been time of day, and the heat. My HR was pretty high and I was just uncomfortable the whole time.
What would you do differently?:

Don't think there is much more I could have done.

Ya know... I would imagine it's tough to do a race at night after running around (no pun intended but it works) all day doing the routine things.  Congratulations on pushing through it, though!!!

Non-early morning races throw me off. I never have any idea what to do during the day.
