And you know what?
My run didn't suck. My legs felt a little tight a little less than a 1/4 mile in, but that's on an uphill and an amazing thing happened...as I ran, I felt my legs start to loosen!
I was running super slow. The first mile was 10:51 (but that was all against the wind also). I stopped then and took a drink of water and stretched. My legs still felt good and the mile back was in 9:41. I only went 2 miles, I don't want to overdo it and have my legs start feeling like crap again.
So encouraging! Maybe I will make it through my race.
