My goal tomorrow is to achieve a “supporting PR” at Smuttynose Rockfest Marathon! Sue, Kellie, and Carrie are running the full; Karen is running the half as preparation for Baystate later this month. Meaghan’s off to tackle Wineglass Marathon. All are eagerly awaiting the start of their races….
And so am I!!!
Seriously, you’d think I was running tomorrow. I’ve got course maps, cow bells, extra waters for our friends, and my own running stuff that will enable me to help run Carrie through that final 10K part of the race.
And with that, I’m pretty sure I’m having taper sympathy pains….
- This morning, I felt achy knees
- After achy knees came an achy right hip
- I craved pasta today and shoveled it in like it was my job
- And I’m just overall cranky today.
Yep, sure fire signs of a tapering marathoner.
I’m guessing I will over-carbo-load later as many do the night before, have a terrible bout with insomnia (what’s new), and awaken tomorrow with butterflies. So, my running friends, I am experiencing it right alongside you! I’m excited for you all to have great races and can’t wait to celebrate your awesome accomplishments!
