I honestly don't have too much to say about this one, guys.
I've gone into races unprepared and I'd feel a lot better if I'd been slacking during my training for this one. I played by the rules, I stuck to my training plan but it was just a bad day.
The race was wonderful, the support was stellar and I would recommend it in a heartbeat to anyone.
I had wonderful personal support as well, Jenn was by my side every step and if it hadn't been for her I'm not sure I wouldn't be laying in a ditch somewhere in Springfield right now.
There are parts of the race I don't remember at all, which is probably just as well.
All I can say is that I finished and its behind me.
Illinois is next and it will be a better race.
Have you had a really bad race? How did you get through it? How did it effect your next race?
