Road to nowhere, don't worry about a bad run. It's not as if you can only do it Once in a Lifetime.
Wise words form Philomena, the thing about a poor race is that you can always try it again next year. I can use the example of the half marathon I'm doing on Sunday. For various reasons, it has been a total disaster on both previous attempts. At least if you know where you went wrong you can rectify it next time.
Try not to dwell too much on the disappointment of the result, but focus on the next challenge. I mentally consign a race to history as soon as I have picked up my bag and put my finishers medal in it. I have found that it's the best way to get over a poor performance.
