Umstead 9 weeks ago. Dwelling on the past only increases the frustration level and facilitates excuses for not achieving our goals. As my wife likes to say, "Build a bridge and get over it". I think this is truly great advice for us runners. It is rare that things go perfectly for us. Take things in stride and lets do the best we can. Look forward to the good things to come.
Hope your next event no matter how you got there is a blast. I will certainly let you know how mine goes. Peace
