It’s the final days before the Oklahoma City marathon, and I’m suddenly seeing exactly how much housework needs to be done.
Actually, I look forward to tapering for a race because I need that extra time to catch up on mom things like cooking actual meals for my family, laundry, clearing out some clutter, and sleep. But what I most look forward to is catching up on reading.
This will be my last marathon for a while. I don’t have anything planned until the Dallas Marathon in December. We have been house hunting the past month, and the thought of high mileage training and moving does not sit well.
In preparation for Sunday’s race, I took a look back at my post from last year. With everything that has happened, I expect there will be a few tears this year as well.
On a lighter note, here’s my motto for the rest of the week as I begin to carbo-load for Sunday.
What do you look forward to when you taper for a race?
