It’s two weeks before the Twin Cities Marathon. I’ve completed today’s training run. You know what that means.
It’s time to taper.
I’ve given this a lot of thought and have realized that it’s not just my running on which I need to cut back.
Hey Bob, will you please take out the trash and recycling?
Sorry honey, I’m tapering. It’ll have to wait.
Dad, will you help me with this homework assignment?
No can do, buddy. It’s taper time.
Bob, the boss called. He needs an updated WENUS report.
Gotta tell him it won’t be ready until after October 7. I’m tapering, dammit!
Hi, this is Hannah from the city code enforcement office. You haven’t mowed your yard in a while.
Taper, Hannah, taper. Be patient.
Until this year I have not truly appreciated that two-week taper period before the big race.
