I don't usually denote a course being long but today was at least .05 long if not a full .1. Put up a good battle with a high school standout but still led wire to wire to win the race. first mile was slow in 5:37, 2nd was 5:58, threw in a surge at the third mile which dropped my competitor for good and hit 5:50, closed total in 18:05..once again, not a great time but i did enough to win and i do believe the course was a tad long. I also did not feel up to par today, just felt sluggish and couldn't really find that next gear. on the bright side, i was awarded $50 for my efforts, which is always nice. I also feel good about being able to negative split the last mile.

Ran the clive race today. i've run this race in 2008 and 2010 and ran really well both times, but they completely moved the race to a different location and thus a different course. I know ive complained about courses lately, but this one was the worst. It was probably close on actual distance, but it was hillier than hilly. I don't do hills well haha! first mile was 5:34, 2nd was 6:05 and last 1.1 was 6:50 or something. I dunno, i did not enjoy this race and just felt tired the whole time. 70 degrees with 95% humidity also hampered efforts as the winner only ran 17:05 and 2nd and third were 18 and 18:02 respectively. Slow times all around, mine included.
