That's the spirit. I've found focused anger does well in the shorter events.
Just because running is simple does not mean it is easy.
I generally get demoralized by stupid little things going wrong (ditched tunes b/c of battery failure, ditched 4 miles of my run today b/c of low battery on Garmin), so I can really appreciate the determination to fight through the issues and come in with a solid time and AG win.

I suppose we need to know what "ditched 4 miles of my run" means, I assumed the run was shortened.

If ever there was a case for HTFU its this,you bailed out of a run because of flat batteries! I could understand if they were in a pacemaker but in a Garmin?
It was the lame excuse that I was looking for. I know the mileage and the roads, but this was my 52nd mile after a 40 mile week, the weather was a little warm, the sun was in my eyes, etc. I had planned 22 miles, but ran 18.
