PM: 2 WU 6 mile "race" 2 CD. 

Oops. Ran like a dumbass in 86 degree heat. I messed up the turnaround and inadvertently cut the “race” short. I guess a cone on the trail means go off the trail instead of “turnaround.” I wish there was a course marshal there or something to let me know.  Upon discovering this at the end I basically DQed myself as I did not run the full course. Missed out on $250 bucks too. I went out way oo fast and dropped anyone else which was a mistake. I should have gone out in 5:20 and sat there.

Even forgetting about the course mess up I didn't run this too intelligently. I would have won $250 bucks but as it was I couldn't claim I won when I didn't run the full course. It sucked out there. I've learned my lesson once again about being too confident heading into a small race and blasting from the gun. I guess I never learn.  Good training day in the heat I suppose.
