Taper time

October 8, 2010 at 10:12 am 2 comments

Feeling anxious? Nervous? Antsy? Frazzled?

Baking and consuming copious amounts of carb-o-licious treats?


Chocoloate chip cookies



Banana-squash bread



Andrea and some guy that showed up at our clinic party




Struggling to spell basic english words?

Experiencing the inability to distinguish songs you are describing from those playing on the radio at that very moment?

Having difficulty putting together a current and socially acceptable outfit or hairstyle?

These symptoms, along with incompetency in writing blog posts longer than a few sentences, most definitely indicate you are experiencing the taper. Luckily, treatment is readily available, and life should return to normal after simply running 42.2km. Right…?

A huge THANK YOU to Michael for putting up with us last night, and cooking an amazing meal! Also a huge CONGRATS to Summer for her news! Yay!

2 more sleeps. I’m trying to stay positive, visualize the finish in under my goal time, and keep in mind that all the hard work is behind me. The hay is in the barn, right? We’ve trained hard, run miles and miles in the heat, rain, on the road, trails and track, and are READY. Best of luck to everyone running Portland, Okanagan, Valley Harvest, Athens, San Fran and VICTORIA! It’s been such a pleasure training with all of you, and have a great race!
