Though I felt mentally rejuvenated and ready to redeem myself going into Boston, when I started running, I just felt terrible. I had a blood test when I returned and the doctor told me I was a bit anemic. It probably contributed to my poor performance in Boston. It helps to have some reason for feeling bad, but as an athlete, you have to be ready on race day - period. The Olympic team waits for nobody.
