AM: 5.1 miles around the neighorhood - 44:15.  Where's the storms??  A bunch of events cancelled for the forecasted storm...

PM Series 5k "Race" at Ceraland Park.  Delayed for storm.  Did not go well.  A hilly course, but, totally felt like crap after about 1 mile at (what felt like) manageable pace.  5k in 18:58, after 5:50 mile 1.  About 6.7 miles total with WU and CD

AM run around the neighborhood: 4.1 mi. - 29:39 (GPS messed up)  still 35 degrees. 

Lunch run around work lunch loop and roads.  7miles of "eventful" running time.  The roads back there are apparently where the stoners go to joy ride and toke up during lunch.  Also, Some idiot almost ran me over in the 10' wide shoulder of US 50, as they were driving in the shoulder... New shoes are awesome - Blue Clifton 4's !

Beautiful morning.  Took in the last part of a nice sun rise at the start of the run from the house (to the race).  Ran over to Lincoln park for the Series 8k starting at the new pedestrian bridge.  10k with a pickup, an ATM stop, and bathroom break in the middle. 

8k Race: Tim Proctor and I race each other again, with an all too familiar result.  5:55, 6:01, for mile 1 and 2, and I start to struggle, and Tim drops me.  6:14, 6:07, 6:01 for the next 3 miles, so, I at least recover a little bit and get some of it back.  29:52. 

The race is always fun and interesting - the course is an out and back, and the 8k starts 10 minutes before the 5k.  So on the way back, there is the chance to catch some of the ~20 minute 5k runners.  

Chatted with Tim, Perez, Tom, some of the other guys after for  bit, got my free Smoothie, and jogged over to soccer fields for Jude's soccer game.  4.3 miles easy with a little bit of trail by the river.
