I had high hopes for this race, Stratford is one of my favorite towns to run in! Between the beautiful beach and the flat roads at the Harvest Hustle, I was ready to run this town. Going so slow though gave me aches and pains. On top of that, the more people passed me I got discouraged.
I don't want to spend too much time focusing on how good I didn't do, instead I will focus on moving forward and refocusing on marathon training. I have a goal, even if I temporarily hate that goal, on January 11, 2015 I WILL run a marathon. A full marathon. 26.2 miles. Failure is not an option.
