my race today was very similar to philly -- fairly conservative start, right where i wanted to be in the middle, and then shaky-but-hanging-on at the end. i'm now a bit closer to my goal of sub-1:20, but i'm bummed i didn't get it today. i really thought i would get it.

the opportunity was there, just like in philly -- ideal course (pancake flat), lots of competition, and good racing conditions (it was raining today but temperatures were nice). i also felt a lot more prepared today than i did in philly.

i ran with my teammate, jill. we were both looking for the sub-1:20, and we agreed after the race that our first 5k was overly conservative. we probably could have saved ourselves 20-25 seconds there and still hung on okay at the end. 

the 6:17 at mile 7 is a mystery, as we were rolling through these miles and it didn't feel like we had slowed down or let up on the effort at all. it was discouraging to see that because we thought were in a good 6:05 groove. jill ended up dropping me right around mile 12, but i stayed fairly close and finished 9 seconds back from her. the race ended with ~200m on the track -- ideally this provides a nice boost and an opportunity to throw down a good finishing kick, but i didn't have anything left. i think i fell back another 2-3 seconds from jill just on the track.

i will keep trying. my biggest goal in the short term is to get this right (right being 1:17-1:19). in order to do that, i need to be more confident at the beginning and go out a bit more aggressively. i also need be stronger in closing out the final 5k. it's looking like my next shot at it will be in new orleans at the end of february. 

a shout-out to richard fannin for organizing a fast field and giving so many people the chance to go for the OTQ. he had pacers for both the men and the women, and in total 27 men and 14 women qualified today. it was a really cool thing. if similar opportunities are available when 2020 rolls around, i hope to be in the mix.
