12 miles. water wheel loop. smoggy. groggy.
i decided to forgo the SLCTC 5k today for a number of reasons. my work schedule this past week has really thrown me off quite a bit -- eating, sleeping and general sanity have all been absent over the past several days. i also had a lot of work to get done today, and with the race not even starting until 10am, i just didn't have the time for it today -- too many other things to do that took priority over running. plus, i know from past experience what can happen in a race after little sleep and lots of stress [hint: ogden 2009].
so, i started off my year of racing with a DNS. as soon as i can retrieve my motivation (it's frozen inside the giant snowbank by my driveway), i'll make another attempt at racing in 2011.
