Ran the Litchfield Road Race, but am not recording this as a race.  It was real hot and my legs were crampy from the start.  Just treated it as a training run and did 7.1 miles in 52:30.  Did the same course last week in 49:30.

Ran 5k road race course 2x...also slightly pulled groin from chuch softball game last night.  Little humbling to be the guy asking for the courtesy runner allowed once per/inning. :)

5 very slow miles...have a slightly pulled groin, so anything under 10min pace caused pain.  Probably should have rested today, but it's hard to sit still for too long.
