Just in case I disappear...

Well about a month back I thought a 5K that is tomorrow night would be fun. It's close to the house and afterward there is a "party" with live music, food, and beer. As an added bribe bonus with registration there are two beer coupons, I figured how could this get any better?! And, while Texas is hot, I figured no worries 'cause I've been doing fine in bootcamp when I do the night sessions that start at 7pm.

Spring forward to now...for the past few weeks the temperature has been over 100 degrees. As in 105-110 - without the heat index (oh yes, the humidity has been high as well). Now for many, this may be normal temperatures, but for here that is dang hot. We are under heat advisories, air pollution watch, and very high pollen (gooo allergies!).

So what's the temperature projected for this race? One-Oh-frickin' five. That's right 105 degrees....I am gonna die...I thought I better go ahead and make a final post just in case I disappear to never be heard from again. My plan is to hydrate and my revised goal (it was to finish in under 30 mins) is just to listen to my body and finish. I can't say that I'm really looking forward to it, cause I'd just be lying...
