am heat festival run 1.5., needed a portopotty and couldnt find  one so went back home and decided to hit something later when the temp was cooler.

 5.6 trail hike and run starting at Big Water parking lot and going up Little Water trail 2 miles to Dog Lake (3 labs in water when I got there so aptly named)  some little side trails then down Big Water Trail.  Beautiful downhill run with temps in upper 60's instead of 90 in the valley.  Bit nervous for Mid Mountain marathon in 2 weeks as my miles have been overall pitiful, but should be a good time anyway. 

Cascadia 6 Miles: 7.10

I have no doubt you will be fine!

I am laughing that you waited until later in the day to run for it to cool off. I was not aware it worked that way in August!

Haha Kelli you are absolutely right...hot as heck later in the day...so going to 8000 feet did the trick.

When I went to 10000 feet a few weeks ago I noticed no difference in temperature...it was hot everywhere. There were more bugs, I did notice that.
