Wow, it is finally here...race week. Back in January, when I first had the idea of running the Chicago Marathon, October 10 seemed a lifetime away. I can not believe that it's this Sunday. Time sure does fly by!
I have been tapering these past couple of weeks. It's a very odd sensation going from 19 mile runs to 8 mile runs. The 3-4 mile runs during the week are strange as well. I know that the tapering is designed to give my legs a break so they are fresh for the run. I just worry that I am losing endurance instead.
Yesterday, the 10 day forecast for Chicago called for a few rain showers on Sunday. I just checked again...mostly sunny, a low of 55, and a high of 73. YAY!
