Tapering and Rambling

Why is tapering so hard? I love having a little time off, but I want to run! Clearly I'm addicted because I feel like I'm coming out of my skin. I feel like a 110 watt bulb in a 20 watt socket (if there is such a thing!). I'm trying not to come unhinged before the race (and not scare my family, either :).

I really am very excited. I wish I knew who was going to be there. I can't find anything on the race website listing who is participating. Kind of disappointing. I'm so geographically isolated from the Ultra community that the only time I get to see anyone is at races, so it is fun to know who is going to show up. There has been very little chatter about the race on the List, so I can only hope some people are coming to Texas. Come on down, the weather is marvelous!

Your taper must be exactly perfect because isn't the goal of a taper to feel like you want to jump out of your skin? I think so....that's awesome and it will pay dividends soon, good luck!

Hi Carilyn! I haven't seen results yet so wanted to check your blog to see how you enjoyed your race. I hope you had a fun time! Looking forward to your report. Hey, I'll be in TX in March, Padre Island.
