Taking a break and relaxing is hard for me.  I would rather be running.  Biking (even falling off of it).  Anything, really.  But I get through taper by reminding myself that taking a break and relaxing is just as integral to success on race day as the hard workouts are.  So today I forced myself to sleep in (which, for me, is 5:30 a.m.).  The extra sleep actually did feel good.

And, is it bad that my marathon hasn’t even been run and already I’m looking at the calendar wondering if I can squeeze another one in between Lansing and Chicago?  🙂

Also got a fun email with new pictures of my puppy. He appears to be relaxing, just like me.  Only 5 more weeks til I get him!
