I am officially bummed!!!!

I just noticed they changed the distance on their site from 5K to 4.3!!!!!!


I really suck now!

Somersault...the site for Fall Colours refers to the run as a 5K. Sports Stat the site that times it, refers to it as a 4.3K....

I am NOT impressed!!! AT ALL!

Funny though, I haven't uploaded my Garmin info to my PC yet, however I questioned the distance when I hit the finish line because my Garmin did go off til a bit AFTER I hit the finish line.

Must go check Garmin now!

UPDATE: I just checked IS so!!!!

I hang my head in shame and go off to bed!
Tomorrow is another day!

    I'm going to have to agree with PLANETSPARKY here (your sister right?): you need a good smacking. She's so right: would you say this about someone else's time? Do you hang your head in shame at me because I finished 5 minutes slower than planned?

    Don't beat yourself up! You ran the race, you did the training, and you should be SO proud! It was a hard racing day (the hills and the wind... oh my the wind!), and you looked fabulous!

    See what you can learn from these races you feel were "bad" (they weren't!!) and use it to improve future races. Often times, we can learn way more from bad runs than from good runs (for example, slow down when running in the wind. or you will zap all your energy in no time!). You already figured out that morning races are harder for you, so you can figure out what you can do to be in better shape when you do have a morning race!

    Hold your head up proud, because you rock! None of that negative self-talk, k? You are a RUNNER, and you ran a good race, even if things didn't go as planned! emoticon

    Dude, don't make me come over there and smack you. Since when is it about finishing time?

    What would you say to P if she was dissing herself like you are doing?

    Snap out of it woman! You did great! Some people can't run 800m! emoticon
