Taper Freak Outs--The Beginning

Taper Freak Out #1
That all these slower-than-marathon-race-pace miles I'm running are going to seriously eff with my ability to PR the US Half in November.

Taper Freak Out #2
That I'm going to trip again but actually for real seriously injure myself and be unable to race.

Taper Freak Out #3
I retired my previous "race" sports bra, and I'm terrified that anything else will chafe in unpredictable places after 26.2 miles.

All of that, my friends, within a 4.75 mile tempo run this morning. 18 days and counting.

Wrap yourself in bubble wrap for the next 18 days and use duct tape instead of a bra!

Happy taper!
