The Oklahoma Death Race

71:34---Pure pain---too hot---105 degrees---high humidity and climbing---Death!

To sum up my evening run the above equation tells the whole story. It was hot, the humidity was rising and my body was already depleted from working hard at Belmar golf club and for some reason, I was in a greater demand for water and fluids.  The run was slow and painful as my gut was doing 360s over and over again.  I had my hydration bottle that has Powerade in it though the essential fluids were not really helping me like usual. I struggled throughout the run and just was able to survive. I am very tired as I write this and I am grateful I survived the run.  Now I can rest up for tomorrow's morning run and workday.
