More post-race thoughts + Giveaway Winner!

Thank you so much for all of your awesome comments on Saturday’s race. I appreciate all of your support and feedback and I’m starting to feel better about the whole thing. Still disappointed, but not so defeated. I know where I went wrong and what I could/should have done differently. As it turns out, I didn’t pee from 5pm Saturday (pre-race) until 10am Sunday (sorry for TMI). I was dehydrated. What a rookie mistake! Anyway, time to get my head in the game for September 27th.

I neglected to mention in my race report that I had the awesome pleasure of ‘running into’ a couple of local bloggers on the course. Both happy go lucky alex and Kenny from A whole lot of soles… wrote excellent race reports so check those out here and here. Great seeing you guys out there!
