easy 4 miles to golf course and back- lunch at work.  Grounds Keeper Willy (actually he looked like Bill Murray from Caddy Shack) stopped his mower, got off, and told me that they did not allow runners on the course - insurance purposes.

Seymour Half Marathon.  65 degrees with some windy spots and high humidity.  Everybody suffered today, but, I really sucked!

Set out at goal pace (6:07) and felt comfortable around there for first 5k.  Then, this funny thing that happens with my knee sometimes started happening again.  It feels like its giving out and then it will stiffen up suddenly and my leg will go straight.  Mostly it stays in this very uncomfortable loose state that really has my body and other leg flailing all over the place.  This continued off and on from about mile 4 to mile 8 before I just stopped at the aid station.  I did some quick stretching and chugged some gatorade.  That problem stoppped and did not come back.  This was probably only because I could not manage to get pace back below 6:20 for the remainder of the race.
