    I’ve never really experienced issues during my taper. I tend to reduce easy running but the intensity sticks around and even becomes a higher % of the overall mileage during the last couple weeks. I feel this is important for keeping the legs neuromuscularly sharp and ready to run in the race 🙂

    I can’t wait to meet you on Sunday! I already feel like I know you but it will be nice to meet in person.
    Enjoy the taper week and I love your mentality on time. Just finishing a half marathon or any race is an accomplishment.
