12 days till race! And a little warning, this week is not going to have miles. Its taper week:) So enjoy the week along with me! Today was a very humid, sticky, moist day. I think it was in the low 100's just like the other parts of the country!

I talked with Phil (ultra pro) last night & he told me to cut my miles way back. So with that advice I did a run/walk combo. Was hard to keep myself to not running straight, but I did it! Reminded myself that August 22 is the goal. Not today. I have a feeling I will be saying that a lot to myself the next 12 days!

Did 5.5 miles on the beach. The ocean water felt great. So did the sand under my feet. Blister still there. Toe nail still on.
