13 days til race day!

This was the first week of taper, but really it was just like a normal “cut back” week and didn’t feel much like taper.  Though I have to admit that feeling like complete crap on yesterday’s run made me think that I need to REALLY taper now.  So for the next two weeks I’m trying to shove work/life stress aside, get extra sleep, eat and drink better and cut back the miles (but leave in quality a couple times a week).

I’m SO excited for Chicago!
