Pre-race routine:

At school, I noticed that my tire was flat. Then after school, I saw that Jeremy's tire was flat too. I knew that we were going to be pushed for time in order to get them changed in time. Unfortunately I forgot that we've never changed a back tire. It took forever. Luckily someone helped us since we were so sad. I really didn't want to ride, but did it anyway.
Event warmup:

Because of the tire changing, we had no warm-up.
  • 1h 10m 34s
  • 19.6 miles
  • 16.67 mile/hr

I definitely did not have the right mindset going into this one. I didn't want to ride and really just wanted to go home. With no warm up, I started out. Within two minutes, I wanted to quit. The first 6 miles were OK, but I had no power at all. Then it was time for the hills. The first "s" curve hurt. Then it was time for Turkey Hill. Of course I saw the turkeys. The worst part was the headwind on 15. After that, it got easier. I just wanted to be done.
What would you do differently?:

I don't know. Not flat, maybe. Learn to change a tire. Not stress so much about flats.
Post race
Warm down:

None. Just wanted to go home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Bad attitude.
