The mini-taper for Sunday’s half-a-marathon began today with a set of hard runs on one of my favorite trail workout routes – an approximately 600 meter hilly gravely trail that ends winding around a soccer field – in lovely Delaware Park.  6 of these averaging about 2 minutes each w/ 2 minutes jog rest.  Very windy on a cool cloudy Fall day, just wonderful.  Including the warm up and cool down, 6 miles in all.  In my mini-taper, I’m thinking of and excited (and secretly envious of…or maybe not) for everyone who’s getting ready for Chicago this weekend…I can feel the anticipation.

    After reading the excitement and anticipation towards the Chicago Marathon around WordPress you can’t help it but to feel excited and envious.
