This was a performance I am not proud of. When it got hard in the middle I made up excuses and felt sorry for myself rather than embracing and pushing. Multiple people went by me and didn't respond to them or use them in a productive way. There was a head wind for the 7km out. Once we turned around I told myself to stop feeling sorry for myself and to just run. I had an old friend come up on my shoulder and I didn't want her to beat me so I got my butt into gear and ran down some people. I need to work on running down people in the middle when the end is not in sight. I can't wait till when I know I will be able to finish to start working hard. I finished tired but nothing like the level of exhaustion from the 10-mile or even the June Classic. This race was a great opportunity to run fast, and I missed it. Moving forward I am never going to finish a race with excuses for not giving my all. I need to harden the f*ck up and just go for it and see what I'm actually capable of regardless if it meets my arbitrary expectations.

Nice long run today. It was wonderful to run with everything starting to bloom. Legs felt better than they have but both calf’s/ankles were still a bit sore. Nearly took a tumble but saved myself in the process landed a bit funny on the left leg and Jammie felt a tinge off.
