  1. Happy Taper!! You made it ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you get lots of rest in the coming weeks for the race and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the best race day weather possible! I miss the training cycles and am not quite sure what my fitness goals will be (if any!) for next year.

    1. Itโ€™s been a crazy ride this time around Lee, but Iโ€™m grateful to have fewer hours of training with all of the crazy going on!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
