just wasn't my day today. I was on target through mile 11, but the
effort level was way too much for the pace I was running and I knew it.
It was 60 degrees and 98% humidity at the start, and 80% humidity at the
finish, and it just kicked my butt. I was really dizzy and it hurt to
take a deep breath. Lots of turns and lots of hills didn't help
anything. After mile 11 I knew a PR or good time wasn't happening so I
just let it go and took it easy the rest of the way - walked and ran and
tried to still enjoy it and not beat myself up too much. Finished in
3:50ish for those that care. Next one will be better. Despite the ups
and downs, I do so much love this sport.
Happy Mother's Day to all of the awesome women who read my blog! :)
