Taper Crazies, 6 Days and Wknd Recap.

Hi there! Hope you are having a great Monday. It’s race week over here and I’ve got a full blown case of the taper crazies. But it’s okay…we are only 6 days away so I will get through it right? Right. Bring it on.


Gotta love scaling back the miles…hoping it will get my legs nice and fresh and ready though for the Marine Corps Marathon. 26.2 number 21, baby!

Let’s recap the weekend a bit!

Not too much went on this weekend…it was basically a whole lot of rest, relaxation and chill time after running. Saturday morning I met up with some peeps from the IRC crew for a long run. I had 12 miles on deck.



I was really actually happy with this run…it felt so good to be doing 8 something minute miles and actually feel good while doing it. For the most part I kept the pace conversational and enjoyed running with some buddies. I even had to reel it in a few times because we were creeping up and getting faster. Love it. Please fall weather…stay around for a long long time.

Sunday I played around in the leaves for a bit…recovery run day. It was overcast with a nice breeze and I encountered a couple of hills along the way. We have lots of pretty leaves on the ground but for some reason most of the trees are all still green? Haha eventually Texas will catch on with the fall foliage.


How was your weekend? Do you get kind of crazy when you have to taper for a race??
