Seems like quite a few of you are reading running or marathon books. I've never read a running book before. Ever! But I'm ready to start reading one. Does anyone have any good recommendations? Either for good running tips or inspirations or just great running stories? Picture books are welcome, too. :-)
On the training front, I'm technically supposed to start tapering for the Nike Marathon on Octobe 19th. But, how do you taper when I haven't really trained for it?
I've recovered surprisingly fast from the half marathon on Sunday. The top of my right foot is a bit sore again and thinking my shoes need to be retired. I've definitely run more than 300 miles on my latest GT-2130 and I think it's time for a new one. My Achilles tendon has also been behaving well and no pain since that one time. Maybe it was confused. Or maybe I am?
I have this picture on my Blackberry Pearl now, thanks to Erik's post last week. It really inspires me to get a pedicure. Haha. Ok, kidding. I want to go run!
