interesting week... we totaled the car outside wamsutter wyoming at 10PM sunday night after a deer jumped in front of the car out of nowhere while my daughter was driving. nobody hurt but a big hassle as car was trashed and had to do some major logistical maneuvers... finally  made it to madison, did an overnight canoe trip down the wisconsin river and got caught in an unbelievable  lightning/thunderstorm while camping on a sandbar. got drenched but survived that too.  my running for the week was pretty shot but I'll call it a good taper for a great race- the madison mini. awesome weather, 53 degrees at start, beautiful course around the capital, lake wingra, arboretum, and back through UW to the union on lakeshore trail- this is as good as it gets. was looking forward to meeting hamdog but we never found each other, bummer. anyway I originally was going to push this race and shoot for 1:22 but I decided friday night that I was too wiped out to run anything but a 6:20 pace so I adjusted my target time to 1:24. Last year that would have won the 50-54 easily, but this year there was some fast guy who tore up the course in 1:19. I never had a chance. had a great time though, really enjoyed the course and running through familiar sights from my hometown. my garmin says the course was 0.1 miles long but who cares. left after the race loaded the family and now am in Kearney nebraska at the holiday inn water park.

had a pretty good race, set a PR over my 2009 time by 3 seconds. three years older three seconds faster!

enjoyed hosting bloggers Jake, Andrea and Adam at my house, and having Allie come over to visit as well. saw lots of bloggers at the race, nice job by all of them. ran a cooldown with Chad, Allie and Kelli (Walter's pacers). great day for a race. great tail wind too. congrats to Jake for the big win!

was planning an 8 mile tempo but my garmin died at 2.6 miles on a course I hadn't plotted ahead to know how far to go for 8. So I winged it. here is how well I did with no watch in terms of hitting 8 for the tempo:
