The bank tower said 95F on my way over to register for this race so I wasn't sure what to expect. I felt a PR (<19:28) might be possible even with the heat as I've been running well lately.
I started out fast but under control and felt reasonably comfortable after the first mile. Second mile was tough but I was able to keep it together. Last mile really sucked. The heat definitely got to me. For a few minutes I forgot about the PR and thought about walking but I was able to hold on and kick to the finish.
Crossed the line at exactly 19:00 gun time. Official results aren't up yet but I should gain a few seconds when they net it out.
Splits ended up 6:05, 6:11, 6:25. New PR by about 30 seconds (pending official results). Great race overall especially considering the heat.
