Trying not to feel guilty

Today was the first time I have pulled out of a race due to having a cold and having shortness of breath (SOB) with it during my challenge.

I feel incredibly guilty that I couldn't manage it. The condition for the race were perfect - dry, not too hot, flat course. But even walking was testing my ability to hold a conversation without getting too breathless.

It was the sensible option. Last time I ran with a cold and SOB  I struggled. Really struggled. And I finished that run feeling worse than when I started.

Today should have been the 20th event of #fortyb4forty. Halfway. 

Anyway, I'm not going to let it get me down, I'm going to get better, get back out running, and move on and do the 20th event soon.
