had bad race because of letsrun
"My coach reminds me of my father, and I hate them both."
"i beat it last night/this morning"
i ate 2 hostess fruit pies 20 min before the race.
i already hit all my good races in practice.
i tore my calf
i tore my achilles
i tore my plantar fascia and my peroneal tendon
i was just wondering what it was like to be thankful i could do a mile slower than the most out of shape person on the track while i bounce back from injury.
i hate the song they were playing.
my girlfriend has more meaningful conversations with her puffer fish.
i tried that muscel milk protein crap that ryan hall recommended
every year they put the mile marks in different places but its the same race.
at mile 3 i knew i was still out way too fast but if still felt super easy and i thought maybe this was the magic day.
i tried to carry my own water bottle to save time.
sweaty sunscreen in my eyes
Julia Webb told me what to do with my life and I got Covid
“It was a warm down”
Has anyone mentioned the pollen count?
I like reading hobby joggers who always seem to start with:
It wasn't the race a planned for but ...
Then the excuses start- from the wind, the heat, the cold, the "unexpected" hills, their GPS said it was 13.33 miles, etc
I had a smartass kid at practice challenge my assertion that the pace they were running the 100 was slow enough I could run it. I had them line up and I joined them. I beat him, at age 52, and his excuse was that he was laughing at my form. I told him that I had to hold back my laughter at a HS kid being out-sprinted by an old man. I also told him that if he were faster, he would not have been able to see my running form.
