Oh well, here I go again, advertising what I have done for this morning!  I ran 12 miles under a 94 degree heat in South Beach and you know what that meant. Yes, I was slow.  I have always been slow in running anyway. My first 4 mile pace averaged 9:22 ; my next 5 averaged 10:30; my last 3 averaged 11:00. So there.  I did not take any Gu with me. I just drank a lot of cold water to avoid dehydration and heat stroke. More about dehydration and heat stroke later. On the relaxation side, I just finished reading Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon. A review will be featured later.  I just thought you wanted to know.
