It's Taper Time!

Well, since I'm positive y'all must be losing sleep over not knowing how Sunday's 20-miler went (riiiiight) . . . I'll get right down to it. It went a little something like this:


But, I got 'er done nonetheless. It wasn't pretty; in fact, at some points (especially one right around mile-19), it was downright ugly. But I finished the 20-miles, and I am officially in taper. How do I feel about that fact? Well, see for yourself:



Full report coming soon, I promise! You won't want to miss this one (or maybe you will if you don't like reading about vomit--yup, how's that for a teaser?)!

Also coming soon . . . a whole lot of crazy! WOOO! TAPER MADNESS!!

Love the visual, Irish! 20-milers, especially in this heat, is just going to suck, no matter who you are. The important part is that you got it done! Can't wait for the (yucky?) details...or maybe I should have breakfast first?

Congrats on getting to the taper!

I'm a firm believer that you benefit from crappy training runs. Now you know you can handle whatever comes your way and still finish. Good luck!
