Glorious Weather

I was looking at the website for the 5K Marty found for us in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, and had to snicker at this warning:

Heat Warning

Temperatures and humidity can be high in South Florida. Drink plenty of fluids prior to and during this event. (Non-Alcoholic!)

Pheww! Good thing they qualified that statement.

There is definitely NOT a heat warning here in NC - the weather has been absolutely gorgeous! Last night we ran at the track and I felt so good! We did a bunch of 800s with short rest and it felt incredibly easy. Too easy. I'd like to feel like that in an upcoming race!

OMG - I can't believe they included an alcohol warning in the race statement. :) Ha - hilarious!

YEA for good-feeling 800s. :)

Next time don't take those repeats so easy there missy! I expect you to trash those boys even more next time.

That's pretty funny that they felt the need to clarify - no alcohol before the event. Although, it might just deaden the pain one feels sprinting redline in a 5K right? Glad to hear the 800s went well!

Perhaps they have had problems with people drinking beer prerace for hydration purposes. Some people aren't too bright.
