I ran a solid first four miles and was on pace for my goal time (about 20 seconds ahead). Around mile 4.5 I heard something hit the ground and I quickly realized that my phone fell out of my side pocket. Fortunately, I realized this fairly quickly and ran back to retrieve it. After this, my mental game was done. I lost most of my focus and my mind was drifting. I know it was my own fault that I let myself get out of the zone and I am disappointed in myself. The rain finally let up when I was about a half of a mile from the finish line.
Regardless, I hit my "B goal" for the day which was a shiny new PR! I don't know if that is the PR shining or if it is me being soaked from head to toe. :) If you were wondering, yes, my arm sleeves frosted over.
