Great Aloha Run- Race Report

I didn't go under an hour. But I'm very happy with my race. I knew the under an hour goal was a stretch. But I threw it out there to help me meet my other goal of just being uncomfortable the entire race.

I don't like pain. I don't like to be uncomfortable for very long. I'm not good at suffering during races. I have no mental toughness. Basically, I'm a wimp. Especially when I have nothing on the line. I race conservatively.

I'm always afraid of blowing up so I let up. I went into the run expecting to blow up at mile 6. If it happened earlier, oh well. If it happened later, even better. ( Read Great Aloha Run more... )
