This weekend was an epic training occasion. Because we're getting close to the whole tapering thing, we drove up for a weekend on the course. We started with a 4-mile jog once we checked into our hotel, and on Saturday, bike two loops on the new bike course. I was gunning for a century but ran out of time and decided 92 was close enough. I felt like I could have kept going, so I'm feeling confident on the bike.

Left to do is another big run - probably 16 miles - and one last weekend of getting every last ounce of training I can before tapering. It will feel weird not driving north to hammer out miles anymore for a few weeks, but I'm sure my body will thank me in the end.
