If you have been reading my blogs, you will remember a year ago that I ran a marathon, but swore that I would not ever run one again!
I guess I ate my own words!
Rock N' Roll Marathon series decided to do a 'remix challenge!' Meaning if you ran the 5K on Saturday and the 1/2 marathon or marathon on Sunday, you get an extra medal!
I had to do this as it is my last time in STL !:)
Here is a look at my weekend:
Yesterday, my legs killed me! I rested all day, soaked in a tub, and now this morning my legs are still stiff. I may not go to class, I guess we will see!;)
I think one of the best parts about doing these type of races is to push your body to extreme limits. This feeling is intense, but it shows you that if you can live this extreme physical pain, you can face anything in life, becuase nothing is as bad as passing out from lack of nutrition (last years marathon)! Also, you burn so much running, it is a blast to pig out after the race.
If you ever want to do a running event, do it! The best thing I can say is to train, and then hit it! It will change you for the better!
Have an amazing start to the week!
