>General Running>Can I be annoying and complain about the heat?
Now that was a bath...
Needs more cowbell!
I ran a 10K about 2 months ago under those temperatures and with humidity. The race started at 8, and the first half hour was ok but after 8:30 when the course was in direct sunlight it was BRUTAL (temp about 80 by then but it felt like it was in the 90s). They had water stations at about that distance and it was ok for me, but I didn't really train that distance with water, so if you do you may want to carry some. As for the heat, if you feel it affecting you, slow the pace down a bit. Like trishierunner said, you may not hit your ideal goal pace, but at least you won't kill yourself getting to the finish line.
I'll hope for a cloudy, cool day for you just in case. So glad that you are getting to run your race! Good luck!
