I did absolutely horrid in the race today. Several people on my team who really shouldn't pass me in a race did this afternoon. Official times aren't up on athletic.net yet, but I'm pretty certain I got in the 21's. Like 2 minutes away from where I should be. Fuuuuck.
So, about the course. As I said yesterday, LOTS of hills. Those just completely murdered me. It didn't help that the worst ones were all during the end of the second mile/beginning of the third. But even so, there's no excuse for me doing as poorly as I did today. When it comes down to it, I really think I just suck a lot of dick when it comes to hills. Then again, at Lincoln Park (fairly hilly), I get consistently under 20 (except for the preview this season). I don't know - maybe its just all mental. Maybe I'm just more of a track runner. One thing's certain - I did horrible today and that ain't gonna stand. We have an invitational this weekend... time to redeem myself...
Oh, and I'll be adding a "Pictures" page pretty soon here. Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
Edit: Athletic.net has times up! Didn't do as bad as I had thought - 20:59. Still not great.
