In case you don't live in Florida and were wondering just how hot it can get down here, I think we had at least three kids puke in the middle of their runs last weekend. That, or they all just really want to be like Ishod Wair
. In any case, the contest forged on, and we made it through the day. These guys (and girls) were still ripping at 100% and here are the photos to prove it. Huge shout out to DLXSF for giving us rad products to give away, and for just being great people in general. ...and thanks to everyone who came out and endured the 1,000 degree weather. See you at Harvest Jam!

Thanks Michelle and Joel!

More than a few guys ended up expelling their lunch onto the course thanks to ridiculously high temperatures...
Luckily, we had the clean up crew out there mopping up and handing out water or Gatorade to any pukers.
Beware; these dudes can be pretty judgemental...
Ain't that right Tim?
