AM 5k Race - 50 degrees and overcast

We all know each other pretty well in these races and it makes it easy to pace and determine where you should be.  The first place guy today won in 16:10, and that is pretty average for him, so me and another guy were alone in the second/third place battle today.

Mile 1 everybody goes out too fast every time - no different today.  There are also a lot of turns and momentum killers on this particular course.  Feeling good today and had a strong finish - I really though that maybe a PR was possible today.
