For my first race of the year and the cold windy conditions I wasn't to disappointed. My legs felt good, given how dead they were after wednesday's run. I knew the leader's were going to run a sub 20, but I didn't really push myself to keep up.
What would you do differently?:

Push myself harder. Its amazing how quickly the pain you feel running a race subsides after you finish. It always makes me kick myself for not pushing harder. Would love to finish a race without that regret.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked, drank some water, ate a banana, talked.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Mental. Its always mental
