My training in regards to distance and running sucked this year.
My training in regards to martial arts was pretty solid.
I have been nicked up and having too much lower back and left hip pain too often.
I was really sick all week, the kind where the color of the stuff you are coughing up is worrisome.
I hate excuses.
I am stubborn.
The weather was dry.
My sinuses were mostly cleared up.
I had new running gear to wear.
I succeeded in my slowest race in the 15 years I have now been doing this.
