Not my day…

The Long Beach Marathon was not a good race for me.  I had such high expectations for this race so the fall was much farther; I hit harder.  I have shed my tears and am now ready to move forward.  I am starting on my race report and post mortem.  I wanted to update here for any readers who don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook.  I’m still not sure exactly what happened…. more in the race report.

results: 4:15:32
place: 1248/3527
women: 364/1369
F 40-44: 63/210

Chin up Lisa. What's next?

Irene said...

Live and learn. Perhaps this wasn't THE one, but everything will fall into place. You can only look forward. As Glenn said "chin up."


*HUGS*

Terri said...

So sorry, Lisa. I'm looking forward to your report, though, and I know you will bounce back from this. The good race is right around the corner for you, I am sure.

Lisa said...

I'm sorry that you didn't achieve your goals. But you DID just run a marathon. And at a respectable time. Not all races will be PRs. Chin up, learn what you can, and move forward.

:-)

I think I already said this on your FB page, but I found LB to be a heck of a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I'm not sure why...I think I may need those rolling hills. I thought I'd be a lot closer to my PR pace than I was.

We'll get 'em next time, a 4:15 marathon is nothing to be too sad about, not for long anyway. You Rock

Big hugs. Sorry it wasn't what you'd hoped for. Congrats all the same though!

Sorry the race didn't go as planned :( however, I am so glad I got to meet you post-race and got to hang out for a bit!

I totally understand and share your same sadness. My BF told me if I beat my PR on this one, he'd pay my next race. Well it didn't happen...did so much worse. Like others said, chip up and move forward. We all have bad days. Let's learn from it and do better next time. What steps will you take? I put myself on a plan for sub 2 hours on a half and hope to report back better results next time. YOU CAN DO IT!

*chin up...sorry

It happens. The marathon is so unpredictable. You can have the best preparation and in the end have it all fall apart on the day. Sorry that it wasn't what you were hoping for.

Did we have the exact same day, or what?? Thanks so much for your comment.

I got sooo much from re-reading Aron's Eugene race report after this experience. It helps so much to know that others have been there and come back better than ever.

But it still stings. :S
