Scenes from the Taper

One of my last pre-marathon runs: a three-miler home from physical therapy on a gorgeous, sunny fall day. I’ve been really busy this week, but the little bit of time I’ve gotten in the sun has been enough to maintain some level of sanity.

The subway card machines are apparently booted off of floppy disks, which, apparently still exist?

And carbs. Lots of carbs. This: Orecchiette with broccoli and chicken sausage. Maybe after the marathon, I’ll start cooking things without pasta again.

Maybe not.

    Hi! I just recently discovered your website and love it! I am running New York on Sunday, too! I am so nervous but excited too!! How much carbs do you eat over the next few days and how much water should I drink? The biggest dilemna—what time will you eat your breakfast(s) and what will you eat the morning of the race? I am in the 10:40 wave. Any words of advice for a 1st timer? Thank you soooo much!! Good luck!!

    I thought of you a lot the past couple of days! Hopefully that’s not creepy 😉 I went to NYC Tuesday and was a guest on The Dr. Oz Show yesterday. I went by myself, and I kept wishing I had a friend in the city to hang out with on Tuesday night! I was terrified to venture out of my hotel alone 😉

    Good luck this weekend!!
