Worst running experience:
I was new to long runs, decided to do a 10 mile out 10 mile back long run in the Florida heat with a hand held bottle of water. I started early in the morning; around mile 15 the temp was in the 90s and I started cramping in my quads. I walked the last 2 miles home and was barely able to get home from my legs locking so bad; Lesson learned about hydration.
