i agree he needs to be racing at least every other weekend. He should be doing 15's, 3k's, and 5k's at ~3 meets a month. By barely racing having a bad race like this is gonna destroy his confidence, since Jerry will probably only have him run like one more 5k before USATF and no other races. Webb has been out of the game for 5 years, he NEEDS racing experience. One race a month starting in April ain't gonna do it.
Likely he just has heavy legs right now, but that race is gonna hurt his confidence quite a bit which is not good.
