This was hard. Had heavy legs due to hard week of training. Humidity was high at 83%. Dew point was 68.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe drink more before hand or carry a water bottle mostly for cooling off.

Hard to run as well as you'd like in the heat and humidity, but I'd say it's a great result regardless!  As you say, top 8% is a fine finish - especially on tired legs!

In November of 2000, I noticed that I was losing the feeling in my toes. The sensation traveled up my body and within a week, I was nearly 80% paralyzed.

First, with your upcoming 5K, I strongly advise you to check out the “Couch to 5K” training schedule. This training schedule is a GREAT way to get back into running safely and wisely.

If you are like many runners you may be frustrated at racing 5K distances and never being able to run them faster. Improve your race pace with this flexible 12 week program.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had weight issues. I remember standing on the scale as a child weighing 60 pounds and feeling fat. My family dealt with stress by eating.
