Seymour Half Marathon:

Started morning with a jog over to Tim's house.  Rode over to Seym. with Tim (car).  Jogged around track for a WU in the nasty humidity - 2.7miles.  Race start at 7:30a.  Warm and humid/overcast, so no hope for moisture going away. 

3 or 4 of us in the lead group dwindled to 2 of us by mile 3.  Some heavy breathing going on behind me and an unknown younger fella by taht point.  We were looking a about 6:10-6:15 pace, and both un-affected thus far.  A long part of the race (first 6.5 miles) in Seymour and neighborhoods, a couple turns and then the out and back past the vineyard, with the "back" in to a slight headwind.  By mile 8, I start breathing heavy at 6:10 pace.  Struggling a lot within a half a mile, and the younger guy leaves me in his dust.  Pretty decent time for specific training volume, weather, etc.  A hard effort for 6:2x - 6:3x's at the end (last 5k):

6:12, 20, 12, 17, 11, 17, 07, 16, 17, 21, 23, 36, 31 - for a 1:22:36 and 2nd place.

drove Tim's car home, as he rode the bike back home, and then jogged back to the house from there - 2.7 miles more.
