I've 100% ruined a race cause I had the lead for 15 seconds off the start. Just not worth it. I sort of set a rule, for every 10 miles of distance, I will do a 1/2 mile of hard push at the end (max effort) - so I try to mentally leave that in the energy bank to really push at the end.
I learned (the hard way) in the last running race I was in that the race is rarely won in the first mile. I just actually have to *practice* it.
I just have too much fun going fast.
