Lobsterfest 10k this past weekend. Ran a great first 2 miles, then I just started to kinda suck. Still won my age-group, but I could not catch the lead pack and was stuck running the final 4 miles all alone, which sucks in a race.
A crazy morning pre-race really fucked me up too.. as I normally wear my trainers for a 2-3 mile warm-up, then ditch 'em for my flats... well, a bit of "misscommunication" with my wife led to her and Abe not being at the start, I wasted a lot of mental energy being pissed off and running around like a madman looking for them, finally returning to the start about 15sec. before the gun.
Recipe for a crappy race!
