How to Stand the Heat

I recently came across an article titled, “Summer Running: How to Stand the Heat.” It states that at 70-79 degrees, “elite marathoners slowed down by 3 minutes, with the sub-elites losing 20 minutes.” So my Boston Marathon time of 5:20:02 wasn’t all that bad considering how hot it was. My secret goal was 5 hours, so I can blame the heat for those extra 20 minutes and 2 seconds.
