The unwritten rule in Dallas is that you don't complain about the heat. You can be dressed in a suit and stuck in a one-sided conversation on a rental car lot while the glare of a 105-degree sun batters you like Farrah Fawcett's husband in The Burning Bed, and you just have to sit there and take it. That's why a race along an unshaded section of White Rock Lake at 7 p.m. Wednesday, just an hour or two removed from the day's highest temperatures, is not particularly burdensome. The 13th annual Daylight to Darkness 5-Mile Run starts at the Bath House Cultural Center, 521 E. Lawther Drive. Call 214-821-0909.
Wed., Aug. 23, 7 p.m.
