This morning was a nice, crisp, fall morning. Overcast and cool, with lots of leaves all over the place. Made for a perfect day for my longest competitive run, thus far. It was a 15k, but an unfortunate miss of a turn, when taking a gel, it was actually 9.7 miles. My goal was to finish in under 1:45. Even with my added mileage I got 1:35. So I was happy. I heard the 5k was missing a very important volunteer that told runners when to turn back around. Most kept running and ran much longer than a 5k. I am thinking that made for some unhappy runners. At least with mine, I can only blame myself.
