Race morning started with stomach issues- which I luckily avoided all year on race days. I thought I had cleared that up but ½ mile into the race my stomach turned sour and got worse as I went. I was nauseas from ankle to mouth and had cramps in my side and back to boot. Long story short, I slowed up the rest of the way and slowly jogged it in.
Not only had I thought this would be a piece of cake; I was annoyed early at slower people getting in the way. I turned out to be that guy the rest of the way. I don’t have any long term goals for the 5k, but this was sad, pathetic and ugly. I finished around 31:33.
Back to working out and focusing on long slow races.
More importantly, it was a nice Thanksgiving and I ate a ton of turkey.
