Tapering for this race has been rough. This taper crazies checklist pretty much sums up how I've been feeling lately. I've been experiencing some pain in my left knee and leg. I even put off my last little long run because I didn't want to aggravate my leg. But the crazy thing is.....I can't tell if it's real or if it's all in my head?!? Guess I'll find out starting tomorrow. And I want to eat everything in sight. Not helpful when I'm trying to lose weight. *Sigh* I also keep getting this sore throat, runny nose thing. So what am I doing about it? Popping Vitamin C like it's my J-O-B. And the mood swings. Oy vey! Let's not go there. So the taper crazies are real. I'm ready to get the party started.
My goal for this weekend is to make magical memories, have fun, and finish. I'm not here to set a PR (although my first attempt at Goofy is a PR itself, right?) or go all out and crush goals. I'm here to do something that I set my mind to. Something that I NEVER thought I could do, or would do in a million years. So here goes nothing.
Good luck to everyone running this weekend! If you see me along the course, be sure to say hi! It's going to amazing!
