The long road to 26.2

It’s Taper Time!

Leave a comment

Bib numbers and waves assignments have been sent out for Army Ten Miler! I was released from PT today! It’s October and I am HEALTHY and WHOLE and STRONG and am actually going to race this month!! It’s really real! *happy dance*

So that can only mean one thing – taper time! My taper is going to be a bit, um, unique (?) this year because of having the 10 miler six days before the half marathon, but I’m going to do my best to take care of my legs and my body over the next 2-3 weeks to make sure I am able to really benefit from all of my training come race day. I know I’m asking it to do a lot, running a 10 miler and a half marathon in the same week, but I know I can do it – it’s kind of like having two long long runs on back-to-back weekends, right? We do that all the time. Plus I think the huge mental boost I got from Sunday’s half marathon is going to help keep some of the taper madness at bay. I know I can do this.
