Only five days left till the marathon! Yikes!

In the taper now. Taper of course is the last days or weeks before a race in which you run less and let your body heal from all the training. The idea is to get to the line as fresh and fit as possible.

I have assembled a small support team to help on race day. They will be at strategic spots along the course to give me gel and a water bottle. These are crucial of course to stay hydrated and replenish some of the glycogen I’ll be burning.

Also been working quite a bit on refining my race and pacing strategy. More on this in the next post.

  1. “The path of the righteous is level;
    O upright One, you make the way of the righteous smooth,
    …all that we have accomplished you have done for us.
    Isaiah 26:7 &12

    Praying for a smooth 3 days!

  2. Great blog post thanks for posting
