I am a poor sleeper normally and worse before a race.
Last night before bed, I set the alarm for 4:30 so I could be out the door comfortably by 5:15 to be in Frederick 45 minutes away by 6:00. But my restless legs had other ideas. I remember seeing 3:00 and thinking I should just get up and go to Fred now and sleep in the car.
Next thing I knew it look like daylight out the window. I thought 5:00. Nope. Clock said 6:30. Never rang. In the night I do recall knocking the clock off the nightstand. It must have shut off.
There was little point in going up to Frederick at that point on the off chance that they let me late-start. If they didn't that would be a 90 minute drive for nothing.
So after a brief hissy fit with lots of swearing, I realized what a true First World Problem this was.
I am still disappointed, but the sunset this evening and will rise in the morning.
