Chris 2014 Goals Raise $3,000 for the Komen 3-Day (and walk 60 miles in 3 days)Run at least one race
Try not to over do the taper. I think I tapered too much for my last race and my legs got a bit stale. Better to keep the mileage up and ramp down just in the last week before the race.
I would hate for you to be disappointed if you don't meet your goal and then have doubts about MCM. There's my $0.02 but take it with a grain of salt.
