Beautiful morning. Took in the last part of a nice sun rise at the start of the run from the house (to the race). Ran over to Lincoln park for the Series 8k starting at the new pedestrian bridge. 10k with a pickup, an ATM stop, and bathroom break in the middle.
8k Race: Tim Proctor and I race each other again, with an all too familiar result. 5:55, 6:01, for mile 1 and 2, and I start to struggle, and Tim drops me. 6:14, 6:07, 6:01 for the next 3 miles, so, I at least recover a little bit and get some of it back. 29:52.
The race is always fun and interesting - the course is an out and back, and the 8k starts 10 minutes before the 5k. So on the way back, there is the chance to catch some of the ~20 minute 5k runners.
Chatted with Tim, Perez, Tom, some of the other guys after for bit, got my free Smoothie, and jogged over to soccer fields for Jude's soccer game. 4.3 miles easy with a little bit of trail by the river.
