Last Saturday I ran the Salt Lake City half marathon. All the way up till race day I was second guessing myself. To be honest till mile 4 I was second guessing myself. Once I got a hang of things and stepped into my rhythm, I felt great. Till I hit mile 11 and the uphill till the finish began. I pushed through and finished strong. That afternoon I went to a yoga class which I think is what saved me from next day soreness. New discovery- A good stretch will help with next day soreness. Yoga has many benefits for runners. Next time you race try following it with a yoga class.
Thanks to my family and friends I pushed through and finished feeling GREAT!
