Last series race of the year. Had to show up to get 3rd for the year.  Still pretty not fit.  Cold, windy and spitting snow flurries during the race.  Out and back on Ppl Tr. on SR 46 in Columbus.  Lead until about 1/2 mi. left and Dwayne crushed my spirit as he comfortably cruised on by.  Splits: 5:53, 6:05, 6:12, and slower for partial.  Surprised to not see a little improvement at least... still got a long way to go for spring.
