Leave it to me to take tapering to the extreme. I didn't run the entire week after Monday. Eh whatever, work was insane. I ran 3 miles in my neighborhood "my kids are at home" loop before heading to the lakefront. The kids will be alright. Plus it's a shorter run compared to like 19 or 20.
I managed to dodge the start line of a 5k in my neighborhood. I'd actually considered the inaugural run for the girls and i until I saw that $45 price tag, and no child prices. Anyway, to my benefit, Sheridan Road was still blocked off. I hit the path right at Mile 5 and stopped at the water fountain for a Gu...chatted with a dude who's training for the 50k/50m ultra at the end of October. I ran down 3.5m and on the return trip saw one of my co-workers who just ran her first half marathon a few weeks ago. Said hi and kept rolling.
Anyway, my head kept fast forwarding to "where will I be on the course at this point" at this same mileage two weeks from now. I'm super anxious, I need to calm down.
