Today is the wife's birthday.  So I went and ran a race in Brown Co. State PArk.  Frosty  5miler:  WU on trails where race course was - very muddy and wet.  Raining during the race.  about 30 degrees and pretty miserable if you weren't running.  Fun times - ran with Danny Webb and Christian Wagner for part of it, and thy put the pedal down in the end and left me.  Lots of elevation gain for a 4.9 mile race --  656 feet.  Ran 36:41 and felt pretty strong for a fifth place finish.
