and boy, am i excited. tapering means giving legs a break by running less until the big day, which is so soon approaching i’m getting butterflies. since my 10-miler, i have been trouble-shooting my shoe issue, broke down and bought a foam roller, and ran 11 miles hungover. i figure if i could do 11 with wanting to puke the entire time, 13 when i’m healthy, happy, and digestively sound will be alright. i want one more long run (11-12 miles) in before i start to taper. this saturday, the TEAM is running over the GW bridge. running from my apartment to the bridge will be around 7-8 miles. i hope to do this myself, meet the TEAM for the bridge run, and then i should be all set. it’s been raining worse than it did during the hurricane, so i hope the weather clears.
official countdown until race day (EEP!): 16 days!!!
