An ultra marathon runner on an eight-to-twelve-mile run would have ignored the temperature of 104 degrees because of his previous experience and conditioning. He would know that he could endure that heat and have a nice run.

He probably had an uncommon experience with his body function. He slowed to understand it, shake it off than go again, but stopped and sought shelter under a tree. Whatever his uncomfortable experience was, probably is not detectable in autopsy due to decomposition.
