Wow, I heard there were some water shortages on the course because the race director apparently judged water needs on when she drove the course the year before when it was much more cool. She apparently doesn't have the ability to check the weather forecast and know she needs to plan for more. However, I didn't hear such a description of how poorly run this one was all around. Thanks for letting us know about it, hopefully this will help someone who may have been considering this one to decide on a better run option.
Sorry to hear so many things went badly for you. However, you overcame a lot of difficulties that would have broken a lot of people. That's something to be proud of and take away from this experience.
