Hi there taper! Remember me?
I think mentally I am feeling better than physically. I just haven't been thinking about the race. All I have to do is pack, drive up there, check in and race. That.is.all. I have done this before, I can do it again.
Besides, I am looking forward to riding that course. It is broken up into so many pieces that mentally it goes by quick! Or maybe riding a 2:28 helped.
Maybe I should ride a 5 hour bike split? That should help get my legs loosened up for a marathon? RIGHT?!?!? Riiiiiiiiiiiight ;)
I will leave you now with a clip from one of my favorite comedians, Tommy Tiernan, with an Olympic themed act:
My favorite part: "Athletes would no longer represent countries, they would represent pharmaceutical companies."
