Just getting ready to take on last 20 mile.
left knee giving me a bit of trouble but hey NO PAIN NO GAIN .
Well everyone I can officially say that I am now on taper.
Taper is when you start to wind down the mileage towards the MAIN EVENT as it is now only 3 weeks away and it couldn’t come quick enough.
If I am honest it really is just about getting to the finish line this time.
It has been 7 years since I ran a full marathon and anyone that says that it is easy is dreaming.
I have an amazing support team but they know how I have found it this time the has been alot of pain and tears on the way.
I can honestly say that I dread swinging my legs out of bed every morning at the moment not knowing how they will feel but in strange way I thrive on it as I know what it feels like to go over the finish line after 26.2 miles.
I don’t think there is any feel like it. It is pure adrenalin. I recommend you try it even a 5k parkrun is a great feeling
