Last weekend a "ran" the Real Florida 5k in Wekiwa Springs State Park. I think this is the fourth time that I have participated in this race and I think this might have been my worst attempt. I had been running a bit more lately but I'm still not in shape. But regardless of my preparation my legs decided not to show up. I felt horrible relatively early in the race and I tried to push myself but my legs just didn't want to cooperate. I even stopped and loosened my shoelaces thinking that that would alleviate the tightness in my calves and the numbness that was starting to creep into my feet but I think I was too far gone by that time. Also, I don't think I hydrated enough the day/night before and that is totally on me. Anyway, I finished so there is that. I don't believe the race was chip timed and the official time I got was 48:53 although my time as I clocked it was 47:46.
