Went down to Tallahassee to run in the USATF Club Cross Country Championships. This race brings in professionals as well as the best club runners in the country.  Normally this would be a race in which to dedicate a whole season and to peak for as most teams did. However, our team just came off a marathon and post-marathon gluttony and decided to do it.  Sadly we were not able to convince all of our fastest guys to go and some of them flaked on us. Looking at my time I realize I probably should have not planned on racing such a tough course a month out but it's a great all around weekend with my teammates.

Not much to say other than I was with so many dudes the whole way, even going through 5K in 16:05 then slowing down due to lack of fitness. It's amazing how gifted some of these athletes are and it really puts into perspective how difficult running can be above the local 5K champ level
