Had a solid warmup this race so that was nice. About 8 minutes of it lol maybe woulda liked a bit more but that's how things go sometimes haha. Anyways, I was excited for this one because I liked the course. Anyways, first mile was 6:28. I led the race until about 2 miles in. I didn't fight like I should've. I actually thought about just dropping out because I didn't really care. Thought psht I can be as slow as I want it doesn't matter. My stomach was killing me and with about .75 left I stopped for a minute. Can't remember the last time I did that in a race, I've just lost my competitive edge I guess. Anyways, some of the other girls were really really nice and helped motivate me to get going again. At the end I kicked and finished at the same time as another girl, so I was tied for 3rd or 4th. Without my wee little break my time was 21:23 but that doesn't count haha total time was 22:01. Idk what's up with me as of late, but I guess I just like running more for fun now. Plus the training we've done isn't really enough to bring great results, if I were to get really into it and want to improve I'd have to increase mileage and do more speed and tempo workouts. Right now I don't think I'm in that kind of a mood, but perhaps this winter or spring I'll start focusing more on training. 
As for this race, it was fun and a good experience so I was happy with it. Also happy to see that I can still easily break 6:30 in a mile during a tempo/longer race. It felt relaxed and easy-ish. So I haven't lost all my fitness lol
