Let's just call this one a trying race. I am neither extremely disappointed nor extremely proud of my performance. I came into 5150 Kansas pretty fatigued. My training leading up to the event was very solid in an effort to shock my system after taking a 10-day easy period to get through dead week and finals. Given the circumstances, I classified this race as a "C" race. I was doing it to possibly get a few points to qualify for Hy-Vee and to shock my body into fitness. I was, however, not prepared mentally for the race that came to be.
