AM Series Race in Seymour.  Cold and strong headwind south to north.  That wind felt negatively influential for about 1-2 miles of the race.  Otherwise this is a flat faster course usually.  I did not go in expecting much after the 50k last week, but, still was happy to have company and get to talk to a bunch of friends before and after. 

Jogged a bit for warmup with Nathan, hit the bathroom, and toed the line.  ~6:00 pace felt manageable most of the race.  I was running clear second, about 45sec-1 minute back from one of my good friends, Luke (first place guy).  Luke missed a turn, and I was fortunate enough to see him still.  After yelling at him and getting his attention to turn around, I did a little weaving and slowed down a bit to let him catch back up and regain lead.  So, that may have been about 20-30 seconds difference, but, not worth the poor sportmanship.  That resulted in a couple 6:15 miles.  All in all, I'm about where I thought I was, maybe a little ahead, factoring in the 50k fatigue, that I am definitely still feeling. 

10k - 37:34  (6:01, 5:54, 6:03, 6:15, 6:15, 5:57, 1:07)
