Arctic Prairie Dog 10k race in Louisville.

It was chilly but sunny and not exactly "arctic" (thankfully). For once, I had the right layering for the whole race.

I started near the front of the pack and, maybe due to the cold air and not having to bob-and-weave through the crowd, was able to maintain a faster-than-usual pace for most of the race (even on the long, crappy hill up to the turnaround point at the rec center).

For the last three miles, I tried to reel-in two women not far ahead of me who looked like they could be in my same age group; I would catch them but then they'd pull ahead. I kind of faded in the last mile, and they pulled away for good. Turns out one of them was a 20-something, and the other was in my age group.

But...hey, wow, I got 2nd place! :-)
