I HATE the taper!! I know I should be resting to allow myself to properly recover from all of the long training hours I have done, but mentally, my mind says I should be going, going, going!! With only 9 days to race day, I am starting to feel the anxiousness of the taper. During the taper, I typically get sick, but this time I have been filling my body with healthy, whole foods, lots of vitamins, minerals and probiotics. So far, I have been able to fend off any potential illness heading my way.
I’m excited for race day!! It has been a few years since I have run a stand-alone marathon, so I am a little nervous. I know I will successfully finish. Then why am I nervous you might ask? That is an easy answer…I have a time goal in mind for finishing this marathon. Hopefully the nerves will fuel a performance that will allow me to achieve my goal.
Little Rock Marathon…I hope you’re ready…HERE I COME!!
