Thoughts on Tapering...

I'm running the Disney World Marathon in 4 days!!!! Seriously 4 days! Which means that I've been tapering for the past few weeks.  Usually the tapering time is filled with loads of self doubt and my nerves are constantly on edge.  I'm not sure why, but this time I'm not nearly as nervous.  I miss the time out on the road, but I've welcomed the break since my hip was bothering me after the final 20 mile run. Also,  I've made peace with the fact that if I go out on race day and I just can't run at my usual pace I will take it slow.  So what if I don't run the marathon at the pace I originally wanted (sub 4:25), I am still completing a marathon!  And meeting Mickey Mouse!  On top of all of that, I will be at Disney World with my best friend and my husband.

Time goals come and go, but experiences are ever lasting.  I'm looking forward to making this a truly great experience with my loved ones without adding undo pressure on myself.
