Today was my first race of the season! I didn't do particularly well (just as well as I had prepared to do...), but now I've got something to base my goals off of.
I now know that I really need to start running with someone who will motivate me to push myself harder. I'm not too good at doing that on my own.
I also know that I've gotten better at being positive! I usually get down on myself really easily, but today I just enjoyed myself for most of the race.
Now that I know what I need to improve on, I think I can expect to do much better at the race next Friday - just as long as I work to earn it!
