Labor Day 5k

September 3, 2012 (Morning)

Exercise Type: Run

Website said the race started at 9:30 so Petro and I started the warmup at about 8:55. When we got back at 9:05 they told us the race already started and the website was wrong. We took off, keeping time on our own. We started 3 minutes after the rest of the field. I got antsy very early and started off too fast with a 2:18 half mile. First mile was on pace at 5:30, but I didn't feel very strong. I kind of packed it in at this point. I didn't feel how I wanted, there was no way I could win being 3 minutes back, I wasn't prepared to start, and I was pissed the race was so poorly organized.

Enough with the excuses. On the good side I can run an 18:23 unprepared. Bad news is that 18:23 is not acceptable. I quit the race early. Way off my goal of 17:10.

Would've gotten 3rd place, and Petro would've won.
