WHERE ARE WE GOING?

Too Hot to Handle 15K
NO REALLY, WHY?
This is the middle event of a 3-race package sold by Run On (Dash Down Greenville and Santa Fe 5K being the others). I had to do the first one and figured I'd go ahead and get a deal on the other 2.
WHO ELSE IS GOING?
They're taking 3000 runners in the 5K and 15K and have less than 200 spots left. I'm guessing it'll be something like 1900 in the 5K and 1100 in the 15K.
WHAT'S THE FORECAST?
There was a fleeting moment when it looked like we might catch a tiny break, but no, it'll be every bit of 80 degrees at the start of the race and rising quickly from there.
HOW DO WE WIN?
Last year I ran a 1:07:13 so let's set the bar there. It seemed I was pretty happy with that race at the time, but I ran positive splits for every single mile. Secondary to beating that time, I'd just like to run a better race. I've been running a lot of negative splits in training lately so hopefully I can carry that over.
