I have very mixed feelings right now. I'm extremely disappointed, embarrassed and annoyed with my performance today. But at the same time, I had a bomb diggity time hanging out with Norman M. and I actually finished 2nd woman and won a $75 gift card to my favorite running store (whaaaaaaaat).
I felt nauseous the second I woke up and pretty much knew it was going to be bad. The side stitch began before mile 3. It was so bad that I couldn't even walk for awhile. I just stood there, waiting for it to go away, and then started walk/jogging. I actually almost DNF'd, but right before the start of the second lap, it miraculously went away! I cautiously kept running, only for it to return again at mile 4.5, and I jogged it in the rest of the way.
In the past, I blamed side stitches on running too hard, but I didn't run hard until the last 10 seconds of the race.
But enough whining, despite the race I still had a GREAT time hanging out with Norman- this has actually become a pattern. We run a race together, he wins, and I fail. We have a deal that I will sign up for all his "A" races if he'll stay FAR AWAY from mine. lmao! It was also for a great cause, the race director was the shiz nizzle, and I am happy to report minimal pain from the shins. :D Great day!
