It was super humid. This was tied for my personal best, at a pace of 9:02, however this course was hellaza hilly! I dry heaved three times, twice during the run, and once over the line. Yikes! I had to walk up this hill because my heart rate was in the upper 190 and cardiac arrest seemed nearby. Despite the dry heaves, it was a good race overall.
