It is impossible to perform at your best in every race.
Sometimes your body does not respond as it should and a bad race is the result.
The day this happens, do not use these 10 excuses for a bad race.
I’m getting sick.
I arrived late and I did not locate at correct starting corral.
I could not run well because the week before I missed a workout.
It was very hot / very cold.
I saved my energy for the final miles
The race was poorly organized.
I could not go to the bathroom.
I did not care much about this race, I took it as one more training.
I did not sleep well.
Breakfast upset my stomach.
