Rolling over as I hear my alarm sound, my body reminds me that last night I raced.
I feel my hamstrings ache and instantly I flashback to the fact that last night I ran.
Standing up, as I precede to walk to the bathroom, my ankles crack and pop releasing stiffness.
My soreness consumes my body and I begin to walk in favor of the parts of my body that are the most sore.
Post-race soreness has always been a good type of pain, but, only when you run your best. I’d much rather have run well and been sore, than to have ran horribly and been sore.
