PM - 5k Series Race.  This little course is across town around a neighborhood.  A lot of turns, so the course is not particularly fast (for me).  Most of the regular guys did not run today - injury, and other reasons, so it was pretty much down to me and one younger guy (the same 19 year old who beat me last week and has run 16:46 on this course).  He tells me at the starting line that he's been sick all week and has run once.  I don't believe him, especially when he takes off to a 5:25ish first mile.  Then, I see him coming back to me and, as he began to really die at 1.5 mi. and I blow by him, I finally decide he was telling the truth.  So I railed off 2 decent miles and then proceeded to suck wind and lose rhythm very quickly around turns for the last 1.1 (1.15 - GPS) miles:

5:35, 5:38, 5:52, 0:50 for GPSed 0.15mi.  Sealed up the overall Race Series Win today!  Cross that one off. :)

Taper week this past week and this week.  IMM on Saturday!
