I think the problem for many is that we train in cold weather all winter long and then suddenly on race day, it's almost 90 degrees. If this race were held in June under the same conditions, I think many would do a lot better.
A few minutes before the start, I drank down 20 ounces of water as I always do. The difference was this time, my mouth was already feeling parched just one mile into the race. The only water available in the first 5 miles or so was the BAA water stops. None of the spectators were handing any out until later. Makes sense most years but this time I was really wishing they were.
Every single chance I got, I was drinking and pouring water on my head. It still wasn't enough
I hear what you are saying, but check the thread above.rojo famously told runners with experiences like yours to "grow a pair" on the front page....from the comfort of his home.
