Race in Seymour Indiana. This race has been ran for many years drawing about 400 runners.  47 degrees, off and on light rain and windy.  1.5 mile wu. Actually, I thought it was a nice day for a race.

First mile:  I lined up near the front and concentrated on a slow first mile.  most of the leading pack went out fast.  6:04 (6:11) for this mile.  

 

Second mile:  This mile had a couple of small rises and into the wind.  I was all alone from this point on.  6:14 (6:21)

Third mile: This mile wrapped back on the outgoing runner back toward the high school.  Wind to my back I was able to push a bit faster.  5:59 (6:06). and 1:00 minute for the last tenth.

Garmin showed 3.17  (time in parethases is waited for additional distance shown)

This was a family trip to Chicago for the marathon.  Joe Bell joined us on Saturday.  Weather was clear and started out cool (low 50's).  It did however, warm up quick.  By the end of my run it was in the 70's.  I felt that I had trained well.  The thing I was lacking was the long long runs.  I think it showed up because I experienced serious melt down in the 21st mile.  I must say I enjoyed the run up to that point.  crowd support was awsome.  The group I was in (the 3:10 pace group) was large.  splits were even.  Course is flat.  This was my worst performance in many years.  

Can't let that get me down though.  We are running the Bourbon Chase this weekend and the Monumental Marathon in 4 weeks.

This is a 203 mile relay race through Bourbon country of Kentucky.  Relay team of 12 runners.  You follow the Bourbon Trail from distillery to distillery.  Our team MFSB (Must Find Some Bourbon) was mainly built of 50+ year old runners.  My wife and I are a bit below the median age.  

 

I ran legs 2, 14, 26, 33.  

 

Leg 2:  7.4 miles of Rolling terrain.  241 elevation Gain; 234 feet loss.  1:03 pm start, sunny and 63 degrees.  I passed a few people but took it a little easy anticipating a long night and day tomorrow.  

7:04, 6:58, 7:17, 7:10, 6:40, 7:10, 7:15 (2:57) for a 7:08 mpm average

Leg 26:  10:34 am start. 7.65 miles.  50 degrees and sunny.  482 feet elevation gain.  401 feet elevation loss.  runners have thinned out conciderably.  Most of the run, I was out there by myself.

Leg 33: 4:40 pm start.  55 degrees and very nice.  This was an unplanned leg for me.  However, due to team-members fatigue and injury, I ran it.  365 feet of Elevation Gain, 273 feet of fall.
