The races began under cloudy skies with cool temperatures, and a steady afternoon drizzle kept everyone cool and wet ;-). Cool overnight temperatures helped but the high humidity did not. A hard rain early before sunrise put a bit of a damper on the festivities but runners persevered through the night to finish under cool temperatures and cloudy skies. Congratulations to all who ran!
