The day is coming fast and excitement continues to build, especially for first timers. If this is your first Half Marathon, try to relax and enjoy the process. For the last couple of months, your weekly long runs have gradually been getting longer and longer. You’ve run farther than you ever thought you would or could. Now it’s time to taper and cut back a bit. Don’t let taper madness get the best of you. Trust the training you’ve put in and enjoy the process. You should be very proud of yourself for what you’ve accomplished so far. It’s not easy to stick to a training schedule while juggling all the other demands of daily life. Take some of the extra time you’re not putting in on the roads and trails and treat yourself.
Enjoy the Memorial Day Weekend!
