Running a marathon is a pretty terrifying experience. From the initial registration panic to the weekly long run mileage increases, there comes a point where spooking easily becomes just apart of your daily routine.
But that all changes the two weeks before a race. At first, the taper sounds fun. Less running? More time with friends, food and loved ones? Who WOULDN'T love the taper? That is until the taper madness sets in...
You're moody, irritable, and plagued with crippling phantom pains. Your restless in your sleep when you're not experiencing pre-race nightmares and you'll pick a fight with anyone who even looks at you suspiciously.
Will you make it to race day unscathed? Will your relationships survive? NO ONE IS SAFE FROM THE TAPER.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!
Until next time, #RunSelfieRepeat.
