I'm with you.
But I gave in... probably ruined my taper. Nearly 50 miles already this week.... what am I thinking???!!!
Just hope the legs recover by Sunday morning.
What is your race plan Kirsten?
I'm planning to go out at a steady pace (not revealing what!) until 20 miles ... if I'm still feeling OK I plan to run the last 10k as my fastest.... if I'm feeling rough I plan to "not walk"!
I just don't want to blow up the first time, so I may run more conservatively than necessary.

So you're opening the door for a second time. You are so busted.

The experience this year got me into gear. Plan on kicking some ass in Vegas in December (If they actually hold the marathon).
