When the cat is away, the mice can play. Unfortunately, a very fast 'cat' came to the race today. Jason Lynch, a 2:16 marathoner with a ~30:00 10K decided to show up. It was a fight for second place. I drafted behind Fritz for the first 5K. With two miles to go, I made a move. It would have worked, but around 1.5k to go, I ran face-first into a 20mph headwind. Fritz quickly caught me, and again I drafted. I was able to outkick him in the last 800, but lost a good 20 or 30 seconds to that wind. Throughout the race I had been hitting 5:10's, gunning for the course record in my age division, but it was not to be.

In any case, this is still a road 10K PR, so I'm happy.

I think you meant Travis Morrison? While both are qualifiers for the trials, Jason wasn't there.
