Made the trip down to Lexington Sunday for nephews BDay on Sunday and to visit with my mom on Mon., Tues., and to run in Bluegrass 10k downtown.  5.3 easy AM miles around my moms place out by Fayette Mall.  A nice park with a paved loop about 1 mi. away.  Shilito PArk brought back some memories.

7:30 am race, met Nathan and his awesome run group at Triangle Park.  Those awesome guys gave me a shirt and picked my packet!  "Good Times" indeed!  Great to run with them and chat with them.

Race itself was humid and an absolute struggle to hang on to ~6min. pace.  Really not in any kind of shape for 5k's and 10k's honestly.  stuck with it and forced a couple of sub-6 miles on aided sections.  37:44 for 21st place was good for today, given current fitness.

AM series race in Freetown, IN (aka - BF).  Arrived to lone gas station in town to discover no ATM or bathroom.  luckily, Danny paid for the race entry .

Warmed up jogging and some strides.  Tractors literally backed out into the road and nearly ran over all of us close to the start line after the race started.  Pretty sure the A-holes intentionally did this...

Anyway, the race was okay.  Humidity off the charts, and probably carrying a couple pounds of the poor diet over the last week around with me.  5:50, 6:00, and a horrible 6:20 split on a slightly uphill last mile.  3rd place finish in 18:34. 

Jogged a cool down after
