The chase, good times. A good group in attendance with Boris, Joe, Jon, and Matt. Did not plan to start off especially fast, but figured I should at least stick with Joe who was in front. The pack broke up when everyone except Boris missed 5. On the way out of 5 my feet slipped sideways off a log (I think the bark came off) and my upper body went the other way, which knocked the wind out of me for a second and apparently caused a good thigh bruise. Caught back up to Boris around 9, and then we ran together for a while, putting some distance on the other guys who were out of sight. After a bit of bumbling around to 17, I was ahead on the second loop, and then by myself. Missed about a minute on 20 despite being in the right spot, but so did almost everyone else. Maybe a bit less hard on the last loop, hoping not to blow the lead. I think it was about 80F in the forest, warmer in the sunny fields. Definitely my hardest effort of the year, and no back problems afterwards.

Doing this week's TSS exercise. I thought it would be a quick one, but it ended up taking most of the run to complete. I have started using a mini-golf style pencil I stole from the girls' art supply basket. it seems to work well and is easier to carry.
