AM Long Run on TM.  After \yesterdays wind storm, its cold outside again, hopefully for last freeze before spring and summer.  2 TM resets, 1 bathroom break, 2 gels (Humas and GU Roctane), and 2 handhelds H20.  Kept it on Variety workout giving some variation to percent grade.  Wore some old Kinvara 4s (Neon Yel.) and felt the reason for retiring the shoes.

18 miles - 2:29:31

Half Marathon race at 8am this morning in Bloomington, IN.  Hitched a ride with a couple Quaff guys from Columbus - always enjoyable company with those two.  Got to packet pickup/ race start line roughly an hour prior.  Cold and windy day - conditions less than ideal.  We jogged some WU - about 2 miles - and dropped off the heavy clothes at the truck.  The race is part of NIRCA events every year, so there's a ton of college guys in running clubs (not scholarship or anything, but, still pretty solid) toeing the line.  Hilly course, with some strong winds along northern stretches of course.  I quickly see my place in this crowd as I am about 50th after a downhill first half mile at 5:40 pace.  I feel every bit of the suffering shown in the last 5k's splits - I pulled back a little bit as the tough rolling portion of the final 2 miles started.

Hilly Course shown in splits: 604, 547, 614, 613, 542, 604, 555, 549, 619, 617, 615, 627, 628, 603

Passed through 10 mi. in about 60:20, but, really struggled with the last 5k. 

1:20:19 for 43rd place.  The funny thing is that this was also 2nd in 30-39 AG  Most of the guys in front were NIRCA/college kids.
