Remember a few days ago when I talked about how happy I was not to be experiencing phantom pains during the taper? Well, I spoke too soon, and like it always does, my right leg is feeling off. It is probably nothing, but I do not want to hurt my race by running on it, so I took off yesterday and today just in case.
I hit the hot tub with Skye and Andrew instead.
This is Skye begging Andrew for a baby sister.
Time to get to the point that I never want to see a bagel again. I ate so many bagels for Boston last year that I didn’t eat another bagel for months.
This salt bagel spoke to my heart. I should have bought a dozen of these.
And now for a few random things before we jump on the plane and head east!
This is one of the many reasons I love writing down my training… I can reflect on last year’s week before the marathon and be reassured that my best races happen when I have awful tapers.
Can someone do this to my hair before the marathon? I had my hair done on Wednesday for a shoot, and running with it like this felt so good. I have no idea how to do it myself, but I’m going to learn how.
Tell me something you are looking forward to this weekend!
Off to Boston! For others going, when do you get there? Any Italian food recommendations? I’m craving something good.
Best bagel and/or bagel shop, in your opinion?! Also, cream cheese or pass?
Have any mantras or things for me to think about on Monday during the race?
-I always learn my favorite ones from you guys!
