I got up early this morning to put in 12 miles on the treadmill and all I could think about was Boston. It was early so I knew that no one had started running yet but I was thinking of all the people nervous and excited ready to start the race they had worked so hard for. After getting to work I stocked the pos on-line. I was really routing for Kara and Ryan Hall, and was blown away by the times set and the records broken. What an amazing day to be a runner.
Today starts my two week taper for my first marathon. I get a little taper crazy so please forgive me for the next two weeks. I really hate tapering, I have put in the hard work I want the reward of the race NOW!
Any tips on marathon tapering?
Have you ever tired 5 hour energy before running?
I have drank before riding my bike and have found that it really does give me energy but I am worried about taking it before running because it tastes SO bad.
