Jim Kane Sugar Bowl 5K… during a heat wave

Yup.

Yesterday, I did my July race, the Jim Kane Sugar Bowl 5K in Southie – put on by the L Street running club. The out and back course along the water was PERFECT in May.

However, come July 18th, at 7PM during a HEATWAVE. Let’s just say it was hot.

But I guess it wasn’t that bad – I had a time of 29:18… and I wasn’t even going for time! I just wanted to not die. I was super thankful that they had ice clothes, two water stops and this awesome guy spraying us with a garden hose.

So yeah – July is complete in my book. Looking for a smaller August race, since the next month is going to be CRAZY. So, if anyone knows of a race in the  Boston area in August, let me know!

Now? Finishing up the work week and then off to my friends bachelorette party for the weekend!
