Race Report: Purity Dash 10k

The Good:

-- I PRed! 49:33.
-- My first two miles were 7:19 and 7:27. Soo... BOOM, bitches!

The Bad:

-- My first two miles were 7:19 and 7:27.
-- I thought I was going to DIE the rest of the race. No joke. My splits:
Mile 1: 7:19
Mile 2: 7:27
Mile 3: 8:01
Mile 4: 8:17
Mile 5: 8:20
Mile 6: 8:10

The Ugly:

Not surprising, when you feel like shit... you LOOK like shit. Awesome.

This might go down as one of the worst executions of a race I've ever had. I'm not saying I could have had a faster time at the race (because, who knows???), but I could have been a little smarter and not felt like I was going to DIE.

How did I manage to have such an epic crash and burn race? Uhhh... I thought it would be a good idea to run only on feel. My garmin just displayed the distance, so I had no freaking clue what pace I was running. Terrible idea. TERRIBLE.

Oh well, at least I enjoyed an ice cream sandwich and a Jungle Juice after the race. OH WAIT, NO I DIDNT, because they were out of both. Hmph.

A PR is a PR, ugly or not, congrats!

Apparently, the Bat Out of Hell Start was epidemic on Saturday. Meh.

But you know what's really stupid? That chick behind you is wearing capris in 80 degrees.

1. You don't really look like shit.

2. How the heck did they run out of ice cream sandwiches?! Purity sponsored it!
