The effects of the race are finally really hitting today. Body is sore and tired. Overall it feels like I got hit by a truck, albeit a small one. I knew it would hit eventually, so I’m not terribly surprised. I’m sure my body is also feeling relief that my big running season is over and I don’t have any more big races the rest of the winter. Just a couple holiday 5K’s coming up.

Now it’s time to do something that is perhaps even more challenging that the races I ran this year. Lose weight over the holiday season so I can start next year at a better place poundage-wise….
