did not intend to run really slow this morning but my legs just didn't want to move any faster. I was dehydrated and carrying a pack on my back that bounced since I forgot to leave my work shoes at work.

Extremely hot, humid, and hilly--the three deadly Hs of summer racing in the DC metro. Ran the first mile in 5:06 and felt amazing. ran through a hilly second mile in 5:20 something still felt good but the hills got to me and I began to crack. I couldn't keep up with my pack and guys that I've easily beaten last spring went right on by. I dug deep to maintain but ran a slow time. Everyone else ran a really slow time as well in the race so I am not taking this as a reflection on who I am as a runner. I'm just really frustrated at how much these guys can beat me given how much I run. It's really stiring the fire to get my mileage and mega workouts back. More for me inside as a person, to show myself that I'm continually evolvong and improving myself in a tangible way, not just rotting in 9-5 office life forever bachelor obscurity already at 30. Bring it on world.
