I didn’t find out I was running this race until Tuesday evening of this week (I was going to be doing something else, but it fell through) so I was not mentally prepared for it. It was sortof by the seat of my pants. It was hard to get ‘up’ for this race because of that, and the fact that it started at 7pm (ugh!)
So I started and ran a great race in the end, even though I felt crappy and thought I wouldn’t break 19. Well, I did and it made me think I should be able to break that elusive 18 sooner rather than later. Woo Hoo!
