Hot and Humid at the Monday Night Fun Run

It certainly felt like summer last night in Raynham, Massachusetts with a bit of heat and humidity finally hitting the region. Race time temperature at 7PM was just shy of 80 degrees and there was a mugginess to the air that could clearly be felt.

Prior to kicking off the race, local running favorite Jim Dupont noted that he was celebrating his 67th birthday and each runner would receive a $2 scratch ticket as his gift to those toeing the line alongside him on his birthday. Happy birthday, Jim!

Thankfully at this week’s run there was a water stop at the halfway point of the race which on such a humid night certainly came in handy. Despite the warm and muggy race conditions, still managed to run a rather strong race and finished with a time of 25:03, good for 7:42/miles on the 3.25 mile course.

Hoping to keep the routine going as much as I can this summer and look forward to meeting some of you at the Monday night fun runs in Raynham. Join me there!
