Over the weekend, I finished my second marathon. Yay! This race was unlike any of the other race that I’ve competed in—it was small! Depending on what you are looking for in a race, participating in a small race could be the fun and casual experience you’re looking for! Or it could be detrimental to your success. I found that there were some major differences between running in small races and large races.
There are some weeks when my legs are begging for a rest, my pantry’s bare shelves insist it’s time to make a grocery run, and work is demanding some overtime. These are the times that I am happy to take a day off from my workout routine. But usually, I find myself a bit restless on rest day.
