AM Series Race in Columbus.  Sad day, as another person was swept away in flood waters of the East Fork White River.  The race route was diverted out of the park where the kid was swept away.

Extremely humid and warm.  Struggle for 6 min. pace after a couple of miles.  5:55, 6:09, 6:14, 6:16, 6:21, 6:15.  The effort was there!
