9a Series Race at Becks Mill in Salem, IN.  Neat historic site of old mill and the surrounding residencies from that time period. 

RAn well on the hilly 5k course: GAP: 5:45, 5:51, 5:52 and then the finish is a massive downhill.  PAce was 4:15, with GAP 4:42.  Feeling alot better about this one than last weekend.  Also - great to have the family in attendance.

MAde the 3 hour drive Sunday morning and got to park in a pretty good spot, and with enough time to jog a bit before and pick up packet.  Wanted at least 30 miles today, and hoping for sub 3hours. 

warmed up with slow jogging before the race - about 3 miles.  Good weather, and a lot of people to contend with to get to bathrooms and corral.  Awesome race experience at the start line with a Thunderstruck montage, and fireworks.  Dude messed up the national anthem lyrics... :)

Anyway, race went just fine  through 17-18 miles.  Clicking off 6:40-6:55 miles, with GPS way off from about mile 4.  The 3 hour pace group was crazy big and made it tough to get water at aid stations, but, I think I managed to hit when I needed.  Mile 19 split had a pretty good hill, and a slower split for me where I los the group a little bit.  A well placed Clif gel at taht point really gave me a boost. and I started feeling good in some downhill miles: 21-23 miles were 6:19, 6:26, and 6:35.  Even passed the pace group and was targetting other people to pick off, my previous favorit game to play when I was oyounger man :)  Then, started fading again: 7:11, and then a dizzy feeling turning in to a severe dizzy spell.  HAd to walk mile 26... Not good.  I bounced back a little bit and ran hard over the finish line.  GPS showed 27 miles.  Crushed some food and warmed back up in the car.  took a a few minutes to recover and regain my senses.  27 miles - 3:09:51

Pretty wrecked from yesterday.  That was supposed to be a training run, and it turned in to a difficult day.
