The story of the 2008 Promise Land 50k started with the heavy rain on Friday evening, which gave birth to a very beautiful morning on the trails, which ended up being quite a hot run for those of us out there after around 11am. It was even hotter for those who finished later. It was over 80-degrees in Sedalia, VA as runners were still crossing the finish line.
Tentative results are up.
More later, including a post-race analysis and a look into how heat affects us during long runs. But for now, grab a cold one and read Mike Day's report on heat and hydration.
Stay cool out there...
