I have been looking forward to this run almost as much as I am looking forward to my half. With the completion of these 12 miles marks the beginning of my TAPER for the Disney Princess Half! I am so excited (and relieved). I have 20 days and a wake-up left until the race and only two more long runs, a 10 miler and an 8. I am very happy that I decided to max out my long runs at 12 miles, instead of the usual 10. I am a novice at half-marathons and I think this gave me the confidence I needed to feel good about the upcoming race.
I have some things I need to do to get ready for the trip down to Disney, including getting my race outfit together. It is mostly complete, just need some final touches. I'll post once I have it done. I also have to get my family packed....which is no small task with two little ones, one of which is in diapers.
Hope you all had a great weekend and I am sure some of you are starting your taper too. Enjoy it!
