I knew going in that I wasn't going to set any PB's. During the race I tried to maintain a decent pace but realized that the heat was going to get the better of me if I didn't slow down. So I swallowed my pride and ran when I could and walked when I couldn't. Either way I was going to get to the finish line, it just wasn't going to be as fast as I had hoped it would be. Looking back, my time didn't really matter. What mattered what that I actually got the opportunity to do it. Crappy day and all, I'm really glad I did.
If you qualified for this years race, would you take the deferment or would you race?
