Tuesday Taper!

So as many of you have said before, tapering feels weird! I'm feeling pretty good though, went our for 5 miles last night, just enjoyed the time on the trail. I had the overwhelming urge to tell EVERY person that I saw "Hey - I'm doing a Marathon on Sunday!!!!", however, I controlled myself!
My "Little Neighbor Girls" had me over their house on Sunday night and made me THE BEST sign! One of my friends that is going to the race will be in charge of holding it for the race. I will post a picture of it as soon as I download it from my camera, but it says -
"Hey Margo You ROCK!", how freaking awesome is that??????
I am driving to the marathon with my parents and my Mom got magnets for the truck that say "Good Luck Margo" and "On Our Way To The Marine Corps Marathon"! I'm hoping to get some "beeps" on the highway for our drive.

Now onto CONTEST NEWS.....we have 2 more winners!

I might be one of the only runners who likes tapering. ha ha. But I'm all about "less is more" (except with wine, of course).

You're gonna rock it girlie!!! So excited for you.

You sign sounds cute. That was very sweet of them. I liked Kate from My So-Called Running's sign for the race she just watched: YOUR FEET HURT CUZ YOU'RE KICKING SO MUCH ASS!!

Ha. Yay for this weekend. And I want to tell everyone that I just ran 5miles of 6 or whatever I can't even imagine a marathon. That would be the first thing that came out of my mouth in any conversation: "Would you like fries with that?" "I'm running a MARATHON!". :D

SuperDave said...

Spend so much time on the improvement of yourself that there is no time to criticize others.
Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you."
