The joy of tapering, and one week till the Pig!

Well, it’s almost here! A week from now, I’ll be running the Flying Pig Marathon for the very first time.  The training was both harder, and a lot more fun than I thought it would be. At this point, I still think I’m one and done on full marathons. As much as I’ve enjoyed it, at times it felt almost like having a part-time job, with all the training runs. But then again, in this last week or so, as we’ve started to taper, I remember why I liked running in the first place. The weather has been great, and I’ve had so much fun on the last couple runs. Today, a group of us got together to run at Spring Grove Cemetery. It was colder than we thought, and we got lost, but we had so much fun and laughed so much! That’s why I do this, and even thought I know it will be hard, and even painful, I hope we have as much fun next Sunday.
