This was a very fun, yet challenging run! I worked out (biceps/triceps/ Zumba) and ran the day (3.5 mi) before as I completely forgot about this run. I normally would take at least one day off before a race. Also, I have been on a low carb diet (~25 grams/day of carbohydrates). My legs begin to burn within the first 5 minutes into the race. I typically do not experience this until I am nearly 3 miles into a run of similar pace, so this short race became as much mental as it was physical. I thank the Lord that I was able to finish this run.
After which, I went to church and had a wonderful time as usual!
