Pisgar. Was slated to be a warm day, but dry. I've never had issues with that before. But it was cool at the start. Saw Amy and Brian, Jesse and then went to the start and go. First five miles flew by as usual. I was running with a pack of 8, but off the back, and couldn't keep up on the hills, plus, I wanted the distance, mostly, going fast was secondary. Went off in to the woods to avoid a bees nest approaching the first manned aid, then hands on knees up that hill.
The course is always nice, and mostly cool in the trees. Stopped to pee, tackled the ridge, and was on pace for a PR. But then it was warm. I ran down the Kilburn Loop fine, but when I turned to come up I realized I was overheating. I should have dumped more water on myself at the aid station (no ice there, apparently they don't have ice if the temperature isn't over 80, which seems like a high threshold) so I basically walked the whole hill up. Then at the aid again I dumped a lot of water on myself (I should have jumped in the lake on the way out) and was like a new person, running up the hill, passing someone, and holding off to the finish. But barely just enough water to keep from cooling down. (It also helped that they had cheez-its at the aid station and I had several handfuls and ran off with a handful. Not a bad way to get salt!)
Finished with a personal worst. But finished and didn't overheat, and got my miles in, and legs don't feel too bad.
