Today marked the first day of a day I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. Taper time!
To celebrate with me, please watch the video below:
But, replace “Hammer time” with “Taper time”… it makes it much better.
I’m excited to finally be in the same month as my marathon since I’ve been training since JULY.
A lot of great things have come from all of this training, number one being I’ve run farther than I ever thought I’d be able to ever. And more distance still to come!
I have also had a lot of fun exploring Provo/ Orem on foot. I have also discovered TED talks as podcasts. I think I’ll have to write about all of the interesting things I’ve learned while running. Look up TED talks, listen/watch any of them. You will not be disappointed.
I have also learned that when I run in the cold my face gets incredibly hot for the rest of the day. Right now, I have a metal ruler pressed against my face to try to cool it down. Any remedies for this?!?
