Last Call.

The final long training run is tomorrow morning. In the whole scheme of things, it won't even be that long. Just three hours of cruising at an easy pace. It will actually be quite a bit ahorter than previous training runs. But when I'm done with this one, I'm done. I'm about one month out from the big race, and it's time to taper. Clea already commented on the love-hate relationship runners have with the taper. She's right. On the one hand, it will be nice not having to get up early and block off hours of the day just to pound the pavement. On the other hand, long runs anchor the week and become something go look forward to while sitting at the office. (sigh)

Well said! Mark and I had to resist the urge to add more miles on today's perfect weather- feel good morning, but rest works! We need to respect it.
