this morning was the norwalk summer series 7 miler - and weather conditions were pretty gnarly. a bank thermometer on the post road read 85 degrees at 7:30 (half an hour before the start). but the real concern was the brutal humidity, which made it seem like we ran the race under water! i finished in 53:24 - well off the 7:30 pace i had wanted to run. it was easily the toughest race i've run this summer - and i was relieved to get it over with when all was said and done!
after some post-race watermelon and ice cream, some of us headed over to amy's house for an excellent brunch. amy had not only got up early (4 a.m.) to put it all together, but she ran the westport summer series 5k (and took second overall) as well!
i'll write up a short race report; here are the race results.
