I had a great time this past weekend at Masochist even though the race didn't go nearly as well as I hoped. Do they ever? I didn't really go into this race with any huge expectations. I just wanted to have fun and beat my time from '07 (7:53) in what I planned to be my last race of 2010. I thought I could fairly easily run under 7:53 and guessed that I would probably be somewhere around the mid 7:30's based on some recent workouts and my increased experience as an ultrarunner three years later. It turns out that I was mistaken and unfortunately it was not going to be easy from the start.
