10k for Bari

Today I ran my local Oxford Day 10k for my Israeli triathlete friend Bari, who was unable to run hers due to the death of her mother-in-law. So Bari, credit yourself with another 10k in your race log.

Unfortunately the humidity really knocked Bari for a loop today and she was only able to slog around the course in a sweaty dripping 1:05:15 (10:31 min/mile pace). Those desert-dwellers just can't take it, can they? They're so evaporation-dependent. Here on the Eastern Shore we laugh at evaporation.

I can hear your laugh all the way over here on the left coast.

Congratulations on a great run for a friend.

Yes I am-! Evaporation dependent! That's certainly one I haven't thought of..
Let's see-we can counter with "you easterners sure are humidity-dependent!" :-)

Sorry about your friend's loss, but very nice of you to get her through the race...

Congrats on getting Bari's 10K for her. I'd have been happy with that time!
