AM - Quality LR workout: 14 MP - 1:32:20. At 6:36 avg., this was not AT effort.  Slightly into some TH effort for 40-50% of the run.  Had to stop after about 10mi. in for a bathroom break, but, was able to pick the pace right back up.  All the flooding made for some interesting scenery.

9AM - 5k Series Race - Pink Power 5k course is people trail by Lincoln Park in Columbus.  Got there a little late and warmed up about 10 minutes.  This course has a block on me - I always suck wind and run slowly in the last mile or so. 

5:44, 5:48, 6:05, 0:51 splits for 18:30.  Solo effort, for the win, but, another disappointing showing at this race.

5.5-6ish miles to CD and shakeout.  LR tomorrow
