it’s times like this, i wish i didn’t have a blog.

Online is wrong.

A fast guy in my running group and I accidentally switched expo bags.

I didn’t make my goal.

I don’t know what it is yet.

But it’s not sub 5.

My guess is 5:08ish.

My soul hurts more than my body.

And my face is stained with tears.

Emotional day.

That’s all for now.
