AM: Series race at Mill Race Park. Another series 5k on tis very familiar territory. Jog from the house to park is about 3.5 miles down SR 11. Decent morning weather wise - 60 degrees and fairly humid. Some unknown high schoolers are there and a lot of familiar guys.
In about 5th place after 1/2 mile and some of the kids immediately start coming back. We quickly seperate in ot top 3 and it looks like 1 nad 2 are going back and forth. I close on them throughout the race and actually pass 2nd place with about 0.25 miles to go. That punk passes me back and blows by :) I ahve nothing left in the tank. He puts about 5 sec onds on me in the kick and I am a distance 3rd.
Course is long, so I turn in a good effort to go 3.2 in 18:27.
