Very muggy, high dewpoint and "sultry." Not much I could do. Wish my start was a bit stronger.

Warm down:

Inhaled 2 bananas and Gatorade upon crossing the finish line to alleviate the cramps.

Nice job Terry! Looks like you have made great progress with the cramps! Those hot, humid conditions are brutal. When I race on really hot and humid days I get real nervous because I have a history of having to make a quick run for the bushes if I get out of range of the port-a-potties!
