07/14/2014 Yesterday's taper 3.5 mile run

Yesterday, I began the final run of tapering down to my event Saturday, Running with the Devil.  I just jogged a 3.5 mile run and kept it comfortable.  It was extremely humid yesterday, so I got a little preview of what it might be racing in July.

Last year, it was hot but not too bad.  I think a lot of people on the mountain thought it was hot, but I didn't have a problem with the temps that day.  Since I am a cold weather wimp, hot weather running is my thing.  I kind of hope Saturday is blistering.  

The plan of eating carbs and drinking a lot of water has begun.  I plan to take, or have Maura take a, bunch of pictures that day and I will post all that I can that afternoon.  I also will have a race report probably by Sunday evening.  

We are 4 days out from the event.  Yikes!
