Brought home the W. I placed first in my age group!
However, this race was MENTALLY challenging for me. I only trained once (because of the outside weather) and because I am on a cut with a caloric deficit, I felt weak. I increased my carb intake for a week, but it wasn't enough. There were so many times while I was running that I wanted to give up and walk what was left. Having a sore throat and runny nose didn't help either lmao. However, I wasn't willing to make any excuse because I knew it was all in my mindset. I wanted to finish. I didn't want to win, place, or get a better time than last year. I wanted to continue running and to cross the line sprinting. I ran the whole thing without stopping and got this extra gift to bring with me along with my hard work😝
