      Seems like sluggish runs are going around. That's a great pace for a hot but relaxed last tempo mile!

      Can you use this as a training run? I would be cautious not to go all out so i could save up for the "A" race. This humidity has been bad as we all know.

      Ditto on what Patty said. Use this as a training run. Feel out the difficulties just keep it at a very comfortable pace. Good Luck.
