Training has been pretty meager this fall. Went out for one six-miler three days before the race. Besides that, most runs have been around 4 miles. Shouldn't really expect much from myself, but I went out a fairly decent pace (about 7:10). Couldn't hold on after mile three, though, especcially when the hills came at me. Last mile was fairly grim. Got passed by a guy who I overtook earlier. Man, I hate that.
What would you do differently?:

Have to be more realistic about my current state of fitness. No point in going out like a rabbit if I come in like molassas.

Warm down:

Bagel, water, some easy stretching.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Endurance base. Lots of negative thoughts on the back half.
