Hottest Run = Best Run?

According to Bob "Skippy" Darrow, last Thursday's training run in Lake Mary registered as the hottest run EVER. It was officially noted in the Roadkiller annals after being recorded off the temperature display on Bob's dashboard. Now, where are those annals, again?

Seriously, it was 93 degrees at the start as five intrepid Roadkillers set out on Thursday's usual
eight-mile loop. For the "varsity" runners, represented by "Young" Daniel McCarthy and Jeremy Davidson, a tempo run was on the schedule so a tempo run it was. Maybe it was the 6:05 mile spilts before the water stop, but somehow these two managed to complete the course in under 55 minutes. The hottest run of the year turned out to be one of the best training runs of the year. Go figure. Our take is that Daniel is peaking, big time, in this weather while Jeremy's hanging on, trying not to hospitalize himself again. Quite a combination. Now we just need Craig, Danny, Tom or Chris to return and tear our legs off.

Coming up... several Roadkillers are planning to race in the
Jim Payne Blue Ribbon 5K run, May 16 in Sanford, FL. This is an evening race with a 6:00 p.m. start time. Here's hoping the recent hot weather training pays off. ... A return to the Hill Course in DeLand is overdue, so look for the Roadkillers to tackle this course on an upcoming Thursday evening, instead of the Lake Mary loop. Most likely after the May 16 5K. And yes, we will be having Pizza afterwards!
