Okay...I ran the half-marathon last year, and had a way better experience!!! It was freaking hot. I finished in 3 hours and 11 minutes, last year I did it in 2 hours and 53 minutes. I ain't sugar coating nothing, between the heat and humidity. Now mind you I am a Las Vegas native for over 26 years of my life, so I am use to dry heat. When you are running by and people are passed out all over the place, makes you kinda worried. It was freaking hot at 6 am in the morning. I have done a full marathon, and it was less painful! Yeah it was cool running through the parks and things, but after mile 4 it was brutal. Plus, I hope the move it back to mid-September, I did not like Labor Day weekend to have to run!
