Friday night I ran in my second 5k. Well, ran would probably not be the correct word choice. I did a LOT of walking and didn’t beat my time from my first 5k, which I had really hoped to do. It was SO freaking hot and humid that I felt like I was suffocating. The entire race just plain sucked. It was about 90 degrees with 74% humidity and dew point of 77 and they had NO water stations. Thanks to Ashley, I now understand why you shouldn’t run in a dew point that high.
Ashley’s pace is a lot faster than mine but she stayed with me and kept trying to make me go faster. I hate that she wouldn’t just go on and try to win but I am thankful for my racing buddy and I am glad she was there. I probably would have quit if it weren’t for her!
