Mom was there and told me I probably got 4th or 5th (she was almost right on!).
And I was tired...
I found another friend Kaili, who had finished only a few minutes after me...I asked her immediately if she thought the field was super tough today...she agreed...the fast girls were out and we were forced to step up to the challenge. My A game was good enough for 5th place today...and I couldn't be prouder.
Some people may only feel successful if they win...or place...but not today.
Today I raced my best (and got a 30 second PR in the process)...nothing to be ashamed of there.
Another day...another race in the books...another PR...and I'm happy.
Any given Sunday...you never know what can happen...as long as you try your best it's bound to be great...
