Would just like the challenge notion of tough conditions. Obviously no humidity is preferable to humidity and 50 degrees would be preferable to 70 degrees, but in reality 70 and humid is nothing. I live in dc and from April to October it's 80-90+ with 95-100 percent humidity every single day. Not the best running weather and u sweat alot but people still can throw down good race times without weather as an excuse. Not taking anything away from Hasay I was very impressed. On the men's side is was just a bad race forget a little bit of humidity.
The smaller core athlete tends to performs better in the heat than thicker trunked athletes - easier to disapate core heat.
