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.
Calling bull on this. First of all, when the temperature is lowest (in the morning) the humidity is highest generally. And when the temperature is highest (in the afternoon) the humidity is lower usually, unless you have rain. You say the humidity is 95 to 100% every day. But looking at June, the average humidity in the morning in DC is 80 while the average humidity in the afternoon is 52. You can't just throw out numbers willy nilly like that.
