after an eventful frantic rescheduling of flights, i made it to arizona late tuesday night. my original flight was scheduled to leave out of atlanta wednesday morning. monday night i get a call from delta that my flight had been cancelled and rescheduled to thursday.
son of a bitch.
i dropped darwin off at the airport tuesday morning and raced home to figure out if i could leave tuesday instead of thursday when the ice was supposed to be the worst.
luckily, i found a flight that left tuesday and 10 hours of travel later i was in arizona. and exhausted.
but now that race day is 2.5 days away, and i have taken a two week sabbatical from running to see if could keep my ankle attached to the rest of my leg, i am going to let you in on a little secret:
tapering is boring.....
in light of that breaking news, here is what i have been doing to keep entertained.
i took some online quizzes. those entertained me for about 20 minutes.
i watched the superbowl on my ipad, because cable is for losers. or because i am poor. and because i was at the shop and we don't have cable.
watched a sunset at the JFK airport while drinking beer and eating pizza.
|that beer cost more than my pizza|
read a lot of books. A LOT. and found a lot of typos.
took the monster on a walkaroo.
hello 75 and sunshine. every.single.day. i could seriously get used to this. it's amazing.
and then today i broke the taper. i couldn't handle it anymore. my butt agreed. it was time to get out there and run some easy miles. 5 miles with fuzzyfatass. glorious! please ignore the leftover mascara look. i am really trying to make it a trend. #noshame #blondehairdontcare
that is how you spend two weeks tapering. until you fail at tapering.
