Week 17 : Taper Complete

“Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”- John 14:6

This week was just easy. 3 easy midweek runs to keep the legs under me and help rest up before the race. I did run a bit faster this week for some reason. I think it's a combination of the cool weather and adrenaline building up. It feels weird that it's almost here. Seems like yesterday that I just started training.

Week 17 Runs:

Tue: 4 miles
Wed: 3 miles
Thur: 4 miles
Mon: 8 miles

Total: 19 miles

My long run had to wait until Monday, but it still counts in week 17. I had a bit of a sore throat and my stomach was feeling kind of funny, so I decided to postpone my run until Sunday. Well, Sunday morning comes along and I hit my alarm & start to get ready to get up. But - no bueno because it is the wife's alarm and there is no way I can get my run in before we have to do our Sunday duties. So it had to be done Monday. No biggie, just glad I got it in.

Now I'm just looking for tips to have a successful race, like the ones from this dude:
