Don’t worry I will not start bawling!

I wish I could point to one thing and say “Oh ok I get it now – that’s what it was – but can’t figure it out:

Was I rested – yes
Was I hung over – no
Was the weather too hot or too cold -no
Was I wearing some “bad” clothes – no
Did I eat right – yes
Was I trained – yes
Any Health issues - no

I guess I just had a “bad” race.

I almost started crying around mile 9ish. …… then I mentally kicked myself in the butt – I looked around……..

Hey stupid – this is awesome. The lights, the crowd, the bands…. This is an experience not to be missed. Enjoy the run!

Still disappointed – HOWEVER – there is always the next one! The training WILL pay off.

PS 2 hours and 9 minutes - 9th out of 219 women in my age..... just not the time I was hoping for!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog about my 5 mile run. I took your advice and came here to read this blog.

    Sorry it didn't work out for you. Sounds like a really good time to me, but if you weren't happy, that's what matters.

    Ok, look, I'm going to give you my best attempt at sympathy.
    ..... (no)
    ..... (not there)
    Hold on, I think I have some here, somewhere. Let me go check my other pants.
    ..... (opens door to closet)
    ..... (checks in clothes hamper)

    You know what? I think that sympathy may be in the mail already.

    Or I am fresh out.
