I slept like crap last night. I got a charlie horse in my calf at 2AM. I was worried about oversleeping. The alarm went off at 5. We left the house at 6:30 to drive to St Louis for the 5K. The advice was to get there 45 mins before the 8AM start. By 7:30 it was raining. By 7:45 there was lightening. They pushed the event back 15 mins for a 8:15 start. At 8AM they canceled all events for the day and handed out the medals. Did I even want my medal? I wasn't sure. I got it though. My mom wanted to take a photo of me and I started crying. LOL.. I was so disappointed. I've been training for 3 months. All I wanted to do was run and be timed. I wanted to say I finished it. I wanted to wear the shirt proudly. Instead I was cold and damp and it's almost noon and I still haven't run.
I'm just bummed. I know I can run 3.1 miles. I just really wanted to do this. To say I did it. Now I can't. Now I have to sign up for another one and do this all again. I was ready to move on to life after a 5K. . .
