12 easy miles. I felt good enough at the end of this run so I did 5 Xhills repeats. I did not measure the hill so I have no idea the time or the distance so I just ran it up and down 5 times.

I was worried about being drained after the 22 miles the day before but I felt really good on this run. it could be all the pasta Beth cooked and I eat about few pounts of it. I cant belive its 17 days before the big run.

10 miles with daisy and that's enough said. Those easy miles were not really easy they were daisy hot pace (7:40 or 50) and the marathon pace was around low 7:00.  No more daisy runs during taper.

fun run jogg walk with Beth the kids and Daisy. We ran the first half a mile before my son saw the swings at the park so we stoped for a while for him to play. We finished the rest the same way run jogg walk it was a lot of fun. All body parts are still injury free. I'm really happy with that. I still feel drained any effort seems to be alot.
