Tomorrow is my last run.
Well, until Sunday. When I'll run, you know, something like a bazillion miles. Or 26.2. Aroundish.
I've heard so much about tapering. Taper madness. Tapering makes you write hilar blog posts chronically celebrity marathon times and pic. (which one of y'all funnies did that last year? I remember the post clearly, but cannot remember who it was..come out of the woodwork if it's you! I'd love to read it again and link to it!)
I must admit, I've not struggled with tapering at all. Like at all, at all. Not one bit. You see, I run early in the mornin'. Early. Okay, not as early as some of y'all, but I'm usually up on the wrong side of 4:30 am. So, yeah, sleeping until 6 hasn't exactly been difficult. I'm making good use of my extra time. And still running! Getting to work on time has been a nice change. So has arriving to work with DRY hair and full makeup! I'm sure my co-workers appreciate this as well.
Tomorrow morning Michelle and I will hit our old trail for 4 lazy miles. And then we'll rest until, well, Race Day. Whoo hoo!
This has been an incredible journey. I've learned so much about myself these past five months. (good and bad) It still amazes me that anyone would read what I have to say. Much less people that don't know me IRL. I'm blessed by your words of encouragement. Thank you for sharing your comments, your wisdom and your experience with me. What a great blogging community! I'll be thinking of y'all as I "run with endurance the race that is set before me."
