I'm not sure you can even call the conditions today even remotely comfortable. At race time it was 80 degrees with a 74! dew point. That's amazon rain forest. The course was hilly and long. It was for a good cause though. Won a free pair of shoes. I knew going in it would be bad but I pulled out the win uncontested. Not going to count this as a race though as my time was pretty sad and I don't like thinking about it!
