I'm Tapering and I'm ABSOLUTELY FINE

Well, here we are. One week until the Chicago Marathon and one week into my taper. This is my A race only race this year, To be honest, I think I'm doing a pretty good job of keeping the taper madness at bay.

It might have to do with the fact that I already had my meltdown 6 weeks ago when my IT band derailed me for awhile. I was pretty positive I would have to walk the whole marathon.

What's that you say? I could have considered not doing the race or deferring to next year?

I was already in too deep. 

Nevertheless, it did force a few days off and a drastic decrease in mileage. I was TriGirl, Interrupted (minus the institutionalization, of course). But I've clawed eased my way back and despite only getting one of my three 16 milers in, I'm feeling pretty good.

Yeah, I'm good.

I just have to not think about how far 26.2 miles is. The trick is to break it up into manageable chunks.




Errr, perhaps the madness is creeping in just a bit.

I guess some things never change. 

See you on the flip side!



  1. LOL! I love your drawings. Best of luck this weekend at Chicago!

  2. The crowds will keep you going! I always break it up by the neighborhoods...north to the Zoo, then south to Boystown, thru Old Town to Downtown, west to Charity Village, south to Taylor Street, Pilsen, Chinatown...then the boring part to Sox park; east to IIT and north on Michigan. You can hear the crowds and see the Jumbotron....right on Roosevelt and up the one "hill" of the whole course and then left to the finish line!

    1. Wow, I will most definitely not remember all of that, but I love the way you broke it up! Thank you Wendy :D

  3. The every day payback rate won't be higher than 10% of day by day net deals, the day by day rate depends on the month to month charge cards deals volume and the measure of loan required. Cash Advances Chicago
