It was bloody hot during this race. It was a struggle to run at a good speed but I think I did okay under the circumstances. Did I mention it was inferno-hot?
It was interesting running along the streets of Oshawa without much concern about the cars. Roads weren’t completely closed but we had a lane to ourselves. We also had a few spectators, like two chicks sitting on lawn chairs with a sign that said “As you pass, I’ll check out your ass”. Oshawa …
After the race was over, I got hosed down by a firefighter. That alone probably saved me from dying of heat stroke. I was a bit soaked but I managed to dry out by the time I got back to the car.
I’m very pleased with my first 10K race. They seem to be easier for me compared to 5K.
