At least that's how I felt after attempting my NY running goal #2 - "Run a sub-23min 5km" at the last Kembla Joggers summer series 5km race.
As I was running around the last bend of the course, I could see the clock 22:46mins... and counting... and I knew I would struggle to make it! Ended up finishing in 23:03mins. If only I could have run 3 seconds faster!! ... may as well have been 3 hours as I just didn't have it in me that day. Oh well... still 9 months of the year left!
