Be honest with yourself
Look over your training log and compare what you actually did with what you intended to do. Did you complete all the training that you should have? Was there an injury that prevented you from maximizing your fitness leading up to the race? Were there outside stresses that prevented you from recovering properly? It helps to take an honest look at your preparation leading up to the season and see where things went wrong. If you have a coach, now is the time to get together and analyze your training plan to see what might be improved upon.
