Tapering

With the Parks Half Marathon on Sunday, I'm going to rest and not run much leading up to the race.  I may do a short run today - two to three miles - but otherwise my plan is to rest and hydrate today and tomorrow.

My biggest challenge - not to over-eat and to eat more carbs and less fat and sugar over the next two days.  No chips and beer in front of the Michigan / Notre Dame game tomorrow afternoon.  Water, gatorade and pretzels - here I come!!!

Go Blue! I can't stand the Irish!

I'll actually be routing for he Bucks as well tonight. Can't stand USC either.

Oh, and good luck in your race!

Thanks Rick! Unfortunately, the Wolverines made too many mistakes today in South Bend. I felt they actually outplayed the Irish, but you can't go into their stadium and fumble, throw interceptions and expect to win.

I think I got a picture of you right as you came out from the tunnel under 355.

Thanks Edward! Do you mind if I link to this picture in my blog post on the marathon?

You can do anything what you want with the picture as long as you attribute it to me. Link to it, upload a copy to the blog, draw a little mustache on yourself, whatever.
