Getting Ready

Now with the “taper” in full swing, I ran 4 miles this afternoon. Wanted to work on my pacing, so I set my watch for 4 miles at a 9:00 pace. I nailed it, 8:58. The hard part of the taper is holding back and waiting.

I just made it for registering for Chicago. It seems like the email they sent out yesterday generated a rush of sign ups and they closed the race sometime this morning.

    I had exactly the same problem with my last taper. Good luck.
