77 out of 89.
That is where I finished in todays 5K. It was tough. It was steaming HOT and most of us looked like this guy throughout the race - Sweating to the oldies. My Ipod didn't work so it was just me listening to my labored breath.
For some reason this time I was pretty stressed out about the race. I have been eating well but could have been better rested if there were more hours in the day. When I got to the sign up area they were loading runners up on buses to get to the starting point. I decided to just sit and try to calm down. Why all this stress?? I have run these before. I just want to survive it right?
It is because I am getting increasingly stressed about the Falmouth Road Race. I am biting off more than I can chew. After todays race I still have a dull headache and the race was 13 hrs ago. I am starting to feel the seriousness of the race. I mean they have an ambulance on site to carry away fools like me who think they are runners.
My number is F3104 - Meaning I am one of 1000's of runners not just 50-100 people. I don't belong there.
I should just go back to walking. I need way more training and 3 weeks isn't enough. I need more engine strength than I have.
