AM series race in Freetown, IN (aka - BF).  Arrived to lone gas station in town to discover no ATM or bathroom.  luckily, Danny paid for the race entry .

Warmed up jogging and some strides.  Tractors literally backed out into the road and nearly ran over all of us close to the start line after the race started.  Pretty sure the A-holes intentionally did this...

Anyway, the race was okay.  Humidity off the charts, and probably carrying a couple pounds of the poor diet over the last week around with me.  5:50, 6:00, and a horrible 6:20 split on a slightly uphill last mile.  3rd place finish in 18:34. 

Jogged a cool down after
