Buurrrr!  20 degrees for this race in Seymour, IN at 9 am.  Danny Fischer smoked everybody and rolled in 33:?? for the win.  2nd place runner and I missed a turn where the race marshal to tell us to turn must've gotten cold and left their corner.  4th place was about 1:00-1:30 behind us the whole race, so the race officials and fellow racers were fortunately nice enough to give us the 2nd and 3rd place finishes.  Looks like I was on pace for about 39:30.  approx. 0.5 mi. jog warmup - call it 0.4 mi. for an even 18 for the day

Splits:

 6:07, 6:25, 6:17, 6:33, 6:28, 3:56 for 0.6

Drove home and ran easy 12 mi. on TM at 7.5 mph - 1:36:00
